The Fifteen Interludes of Life

   1. Don't go for wealth - it can deceive;
       Don't be hung up on looks - they will fade away.
       Go for someone who makes you smile
       'cause only a smile makes a dark day bright.
       Have hope that you find that person who gets you smiling.

   2. May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
       enough trials to make you strong,
       enough sorrow to keep you human,
       enough hope to make you happy and
       enough money to buy gifts!!!

   3. When one door of happiness closes, another opens
       but often we look so long at the closed door that
       we don't see the one which has been opened for us.

   4. It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it,
       but it's also true that we don't know what
       we've been missing until it arrives.

   5. Always put yourself in other's shoes.
       If you feel that it hurts you,
       no doubt it probably hurts the other person, too.

   6. The beginning of love is to let those we love be
       perfectly themselves,
       and not to twist them with our own image -
       - otherwise, we love only the reflection of
       ourselves we find in them.

   7. Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong
       people before meeting the right one
       so that when we finally meet the right person,
       we should know how to be grateful for that gift.

   8. It takes a minute to become infatuated with someone,
      an hour to like someone and a day to love someone -
      but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

   9. Love is when you take away the feeling, the
       passion, the romance and you find out you still
       love the person.

   10. A sad thing about life is when you meet
        someone who means so much to you only to find out
        that beloved one doesn't feel as you do, and you find
        yourself needing to choose between staying
        and feeling hurt, or letting go.

   11. Love starts with a smile, develops
        with a kiss and ends with either a tear or an eternal embrace.

   12. Love comes to those who still hope
        even though they've been disappointed,
        to those who still believe, even though
        they've been betrayed,
        to those who still love even
        though they've been deeply wounded before.

   13. It hurts to love someone and not be
        loved in return, but what is the most
        painful is to love someone and never
        finding the courage to let the
        person know how you feel.

   14. There are things you love to hear
        but you would never hear it from the
        person whom you would like to hear it from,
        but don't be deaf to hear it from the person
        who does say it to you with his heart.

   15. When you were born, you were crying
        and everyone around you was smiling - live
        your life so that when you die, you're smiling
        and everyone around you is crying ~ tears
        of joy for having known you.
