Sometimes you lose. Nothing you can do but admit it.

After all that had happened, how could I miss him? But I did. I did.

If something doesn`t work exactly right, or maybe needs some special treatment, you don`t just throw it away. Everything can`t be fully operational all the time. Sometimes, we need to have the patience to give something the little nudge it needs.

Love is needing someone. Love is putting up with someone`s bad qualities because they somehow complete you.

You can`t make any one person your world. The trick is to take what each can give you and build a world from it.

No matter how many pages of sentences and paragraphs of great stories led up to it, it would always have the last word.

So while it seemed like you were seeing everything, you really weren`t. Just bits and pieces that looked like a whole.

Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.

Only a weak person needed someone else around all the time.

You can`t just plan a moment when things get back on track, just as you can`t plan the moment you lose your way in the first place.

Don`t think or judge, just listen.
