To live in this world, you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones, knowing your own life depends on it; and when the time comes to let it go, let it go.

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know.
Christmas is forever, not for just one day, for loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf. The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
What happened this year, with all our Christmas cheer? We gave each other presents, but went our separate ways.
Let's mend together, to stop our crazy ways. Christmas is more -- than just a single day.
Good tidings for Christmas and a happy New Year.
Have yourself a Merry little Christmas.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
And in our world of plenty, we can spread a smile of joy! Throw your arms around the world at Christmas time.
Christmas day is a day of joy and charity. May God make you very rich in both.
Christmas has lost its meaning for us because we have lost the spirit of expectancy. We cannot prepare for an observance. We must prepare for an experience.
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.
Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.
Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it. Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true.
Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.
Knowing that everything comes to an end is a gift of experience, a consolation gift for knowing that we ourselves are coming to an end. Before we get it we live in a continuous present, and imagine the future as more of that present. Happiness is endless happiness, innocent of its own sure passing. Pain is endless pain.
Sometimes when emotions are aroused, we find the path we've been searching for.
There are never failures -- only gained experience, wisdom, knowledge and lessons in life.
Remember that when someone walks away from you, it’s not the end of your story. But it’s the end of their role in your story.
It's hard to accept the truth when the lies were exactly what you wanted to hear.
Life is like a book. With every page that turns, something new happens. And each chapter gives you more perspective of what's to come.
Have you ever had the feeling that you're so happy that it is hard to bear? It's like you're flying and falling at the same time. Like when you fall and you have that moment where your breath stops and your heart pumps faster and you can feel it beating like no other time. It's a feeling like no other.
In order to understand time, you need to step out of it. In order to understand yourself, you need to stop being yourself. Outside of time and outside of yourself - you can find your essence.
For me, when I picture the person I want to end up with, I don't think about what their career is, or what they look like. I picture the feeling I get when I'm with them.
-- Taylor Swift
I know my flaws before other people point them out to me.
I wish all teenagers can filter through songs instead of turning to drugs and alcohol.
I have this really high priority on happiness and finding something to be happy about.
You have people come into your life shockingly and surprisingly. You have losses that you never thought you'd experience. You have rejection and you have learn how to deal with that and how to get up the next day and go on with it.
There are no rules when it comes to love.
I love making new friends and I respect people for a lot of different reasons.
I think the tiniest little thing can change the course of your day, which can change the course of your year, which can change who you are.
