“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
Thank you so much for taking the time to list those inspiring quotes! I printed them out and I plan to e-blast one everyday to my daughters & their friends! We live in Camden, NJ which has been named one of the most dangerous cities in America our kids need to these positive quotes to counteract the negativity in their lives! Could you suggest a book where I may get more?
When you smile, you are certainly transmitting a special signal to those who are in receipt and to others who observe your smile. This was a signal that I used quite often in various work that I did over the years and have even tested the theory that a smile is a more welcoming sign for people to approach than if you do not smile. Byron Pulsifer, Smiles Are Sunshine For All
So here is my challenge: If you are annoyed at work at least try to grab one of these quotes about positivity at work and think about it once a day. Treat it as a habit, a positive thought for the day at work. When you finish with the above section of quotes why not try some of these work quotes or these achievement quotes, both of which will hopefully give you a tiny bit more inspiration to accomplish great things in your career. And if your career is at a dead end, they may give you the inspiration to follow your passion and get a job you love, not hate.
When in the company of your best friend, you can fully be yourself – without having to wonder about what others may think of you. And that’s where so much of the fun in a friendship arises from. Similarly, no one has ever those absolutely funny and hilarious moments with their bosses or other acquaintances. For this reason, having a best friend can prove to be the source of a lot of unforgettably funny experiences.
Eventually you will have to decide whether you focus your attention on the problem, or possible ways to rise above it. This decision will either make or break your success. Only those who cultivate the willingness to rise above everything that tries to drag them down will advance in life. Whining and complaining about misfortunes will not lead you anywhere.
Thomas A. Edison points out how significantly our own attitude towards failure influences our thinking and behavior. He encourages us not to think of ourselves as losers just because we have failed countless times. Instead, Edison highlights the importance of perseverance. Just imagine what had happened if Edison had only tried 999 times until he gave up: he would not have invented the first commercially viable light bulb.
I will never find a friend as sweet, loving, kind, thoughtful, wise, and generous as you. Every day, I thank God that He paved the way for us to be friends. Never did I imagine that someone like you will want to be friends with someone like me. Your friendship means a lot to me, and I will forever treasure you in my heart. I love you! Happy birthday!
Marriage is a 24 hour job. You get married, you’re no longer an individual. You can’t do nothing by yourself when you get married. Everything is a team effort. ‘Us’, ‘we’, ‘let’s’, honey, come on partner. You can’t do nothing by yourself. Kevin: Baby I’m gonna be right back I’m going to the store. Wife: Well, wait, let me get my coat. Kevin: Bit__, it’s right there on the corner. I just wanna get some chips. I ain’t going to sleep with nobody. Kevin Hart (Video)
“Maman told me that every time you smile, a very tiny bit of the smile stays stuck to your face, so as you get older and older your face starts to show all the tiny bits of all your smiles and you look like you are smiling all the time, even when you are just thinking about what to have for breakfast. She said, also, that if you frown a lot then the frown sticks to your face instead. That way when you are old you have a very frowny face and look cross all the time and people are scared of you.” – Claire King
It’s easy to forget what an amazing gift life really is. Our lives are nothing but a cosmic blink. Even our seemingly all-encompassing world is just tiny blue dot circling an average sized star spiraling around a galaxy of 200-400 billion stars, which itself is just one galaxy among billions more. Yet for one brief moment, we get to experience the wonders of existence, of consciousness.
“When you find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will stand in front of you when other’s cast stones, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who will hold your hand when your sick, who thinks your pretty without makeup, the one who turns to his friends and say, ‘that’s her’, the one that would bear your rejection because losing you means losing his will to live, who kisses you when you screw up, watches the stars and names one for you and will hold and rock that baby for hours so you can sleep…..you marry him all over again.”
The pursuit of your dreams will constantly confront you with insecurities, both internal and environmental. But as Helen Keller has said it so beautifully, you always have the choice to accept the insecurities that come with life. Otherwise your desperate attempts to avoid any danger will restrain you. But if you choose to avoid adventures out of your fear of failure life will become not worth living. Only if you are willing to risk something you will gain something new.
But we all have the opportunity to take what we have and make the best out of it. Instead of lamenting about our difficult situation we need to redirect our attention towards solutions on how we can make the best out of it. There is, unfortunately, no other choice. Have the courage to accept the way your circumstances are and then try your very best to make the best you can from it.
Do we really need to tell you about the importance of being friendly? Be ready to help, be supportive, be understanding, be loving and sympathetic – all of these qualities and a lot more other things make you a good friend and overall a good person. You’ll learn more in the following quotes on being friendly, which you might share with a special person of yours.
If you have children, or if you have ever been a child, you know that friendships can be hard, and great friendships can be hard to find. Learning to share your favorite toys, taking turns, and saying that you are sorry is all part of the process. As we navigate our way through middle school, we learn more about being a good friend. What it feels like to have a friend stick up for you in a crowd, to hold you a spot at the lunch table, and to tell you when you have something stuck in your braces. Sometimes those first best friends are with you into adulthood, and sometimes our friends change as we grow and also change. We all seek to find that true friend who will be with us through thick and thin. She tells you when you can find a more flattering pair of jeans, help you find the courage to quit a job that you hate going to, and loves you enough to tell you when the boyfriend you are chasing after, is no good for you. How lucky we are if we have found a best friend.
