I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.
Live simply so others may simply live.
Never travel faster than your guardian angel can fly.
I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.
Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.
Love to be real, it must cost—it must hurt—it must empty us of self.
People are unrealistic, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway.
Each one of them is Jesus in disguise.
Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.
Love begins by taking care of the closest ones – the ones at home.
When you don’t have anything, then you have everything.
Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand.

Quote from her book In the Meantime: Finding Yourself and the Love You Want: “When you are not happy where you are, and you are not quite sure if you want to leave or how to leave, you are in the meantime. Its a state of limbo. You are hanging on, ready to let go, afraid to fall, not wanting to hurt yourself, afraid you will hurt someone else. In the meantime, you pray the other person will let go first so that you will not feel guilty.”
“The key to success is not what you do, it is how you feel about what you are doing.”

Forgiveness frees us from the pain of the past and moves us beyond our mistakes in the future. What you give you get.
About being ignorant: “So many of us think that if we act like a thing doesn’t exist, it will just go away. If we resist truth, we can only create pain.”

Famous quotes from Whitney Houston about things that made her happy, life and God.
About the way to stand when other people lie about you: “My mother taught me that when you stand in the truth and someone tells a lie about you, don’t fight it. ”
Whitney talks about the value life: “I can tell you that I am not self-destructive. I’m not a person who wants to die. I’m a person who has life, who wants to live. And I always have. And I wouldn’t mistake it for anything else other than that.”
Describing herself Houston once said: “I’m proud of being a mother, a wife, a daughter, and a sister, and a lover and a friend… We’re all God’s children.”
About her path: “I decided long ago never to walk in anyone’s shadow; if I fail, or if I succeed at least I did as I believe.”
Talking about her breakup with her husband Bobby Brown (an interview with Oprah): “I wasn’t going to be living with a man who decided that he didn’t want to live the same way I did or thought about marriage or me the same way.” “And my mother, being the warrior that she is, she stepped in and said, “Let it go. Let it go. Just let it go.”
Whitney Houston about God: “Oprah: Do you now know your own strength? Whitney: I know from whence my help cometh. I do know that. And I know that it’s strong within me. If ever I get low, I get weak, I know where I can turn to. I love the spirit of God so much that I’m not willing to trade that for anything. I’m not trading that for nothing. For nothing. Because I feel joy that I can’t even speak about. And peace that passes all understanding.
Whitney has had a good childhood but has been through many things as an adult. Even with having to go through all hard times she somehow managed to become the most brilliant singer and actresses and to keep many of her fans happy with her art. With more than 140 million albums sold worldwide she was the most awarded woman in the history of music.
RIP, Whitney. We will always love you!
Steve Jobs’ wise quotes that make us think how to live and to be happy.
“Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”
In Steve’s famous speech for Stanford University graduation (2005) he says: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”
“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?”
“Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
“Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water, or do you want a chance to change the world?
