So this thing, where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, is usually a load of bull.

No matter how much we hurt them, the people that are still with you at the end of the day – those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need.
Sex and the City
The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”
Maybe mistakes are what make our fate… without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn’t fall in love, have babies, or be who we are.

But it’s comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart… and if you’re very lucky, a plane ride away”

Signora, between Austria and Italy, there is a section of the Alps called the Semmering. It is an impossibly steep, very high part of the mountains.

Just can’t live that negative way…make way for the positive day!”
Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I’m not perfect and I don’t live to be. But, before you start pointing fingers, make sure your hands are clean.”
A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That’s why they don’t get what they want.

Don’t watch me as the person you see me as today. Watching me as I am now only lets you view my accomplishments and my triumphs. By you watching me it only causes a jealousy within you to boil and you start to hate me for my success. If you must watch something, watch my movements and the way that I conduct myself. Take a glimpse at the strife behind the achievement and then watch me for inspiration. Watch me then for the inspiration to believe and to know that you too can obtain your most desired dream.
Dave Matthews Band
