Don’t just give up

Quote

Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something that you can do and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.

Stephen Hawking

Pleasure and grief

Quote

Not that grief vanishes…but that it begins in time to coexist with pleasure; sorrow sits right beside the rediscovery of what is to be cherished in experience. Just when you think you’re done.

Mark Doty

Choose happiness

Happiness is not by chance, but by choice.

It’s worth it

Quote

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So, love the people who treat you right, forgive the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get the chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Not looking left nor right

A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.

Being positive

Staying positive doesn’t mean you have to be happy all the time. It means that even on hard days you know that there are better ones coming.

Enjoy the ride

Why should we waste the best years of our lives earning money in order to enjoy a questionable freedom during the least valuable part.
