when people are in love they don't need anyone's approval all they do is break the rules


Practice civility toward one another. Admire and emulate ethical behavior wherever you find it. Apply a rigid standard of morality to your lives; and if, periodically, you fail as you surely will, ­adjust your lives, not the standards.  —Ted Koppel
When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed. —Fred Rogers
Consult not your fears, but your hopes and your dreams. —Pope John XXIII
Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter. —Rachel Carson
I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all. —Leo Rosten
If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity. —Benjamin Franklin
The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team. —Phil Jackson
Don't ever give up. Don't ever give in. Don't ever stop trying. Don't ever sell out. And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off. But never, ever, ever give up. —Richelle E. Goodrich
This is the art of courage: to see things as they are and still believe that the victory lies not with those who avoid the bad, but those who taste, in living awareness, every drop of the good. —Victoria Lincoln
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. —Eleanor Roosevelt
Men succeed when they realize that their failures are the preparation for their victories. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning how to dance in the rain. —Vivian Greene
Eat healthily, sleep well, breathe deeply, move harmoniously. —Jean-Pierre Barral
A river cuts through rock, not because of its power, but because of its persistence. —James N. Watkins
It is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. —Helen Keller
