There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. That little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.

If pain must come, may it come quickly. I have a life to live, and I need to live it in the best possible. If he has to make a choice, may he make it now. Then I will either wait for him or forget him. Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worst kind of suffering.
Paulo Coelho (via psych-facts)
Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.

One of the mistakes many of us make is that we feel sorry for ourselves, or for others, thinking that life should be fair, or that someday it will be. It’s not and it won’t. When we make this mistake we tend to spend a lot of time wallowing and/or complaining about what’s wrong with life. “It’s not fair,” we complain, not realizing that, perhaps, it was never intended to be.

When you are procrastinating, use something to remind you not to. It can be a picture of something that triggers certain emotions in you, a sound like an alarm clock, or another person.
So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
Mitch Albom (via psych-facts)
Never regret a day in your life: good days give happiness, bad days give experience, worst days give lessons, and best days give memories.
People don’t make you happy, your thoughts do. People don’t make you sad, your emotions do. Age doesn’t make you mature, experiences do
It’s such a shame to waste time. We always think we have so much of it.
Mitch Albom, For One More Day (via psych-facts)
Just remember that sometimes, the way you think about a person isn’t the way they actually are.
John Green, Paper Towns (via psych-facts)
I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, ‘Because of you I didn’t give up.’

Your handwriting. The way you walk. Which china pattern you choose. It’s all giving you away. Everything you do shows your hand. Everything is a self-portrait. Everything is a diary.
Chuck Palahniuk (via psych-facts)
I still catch myself feeling sad about things that don’t matter anymore.
