Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness
Apologize when you should
And let go of what you can’t change

Take chances, give everything
And have no regrets

Always forgive but never forget
Learn from your mistakes
But never regret
People change, and things go wrong
But always remember
Life goes on…”

You’ll fight with your best friend.
You’ll blame a new love for things an old one did.
You’ll cry because time is passing too fast, and you’ll eventually lose someone you love.

Don’t be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it
will never begin.”
