The walls we build around us to keep out the sadness also keep out the joy.
~ Jim Rohn
If you kick a stone in anger, you'll hurt your own foot.
~ Korean proverb
There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
~ Carl Jung
I don`t need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better.
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
~ Psalms, Bible
Sometimes your closest friends can be your greatest enemy.
Usually when people are sad, they don't do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change.
~ Malcolm X
I'm not even going to get mad anymore. I'm just going to learn to expect the lowest out of the people I thought the highest of.
We enjoy warmth because we have been cold. We appreciate light because we have been in darkness. By the same token, we can experience joy because we have known sadness.
~ David Weatherford
On the bright side, a horrible tragedy really shows you who your true friends are..
I think I've already lost you,
I think you've already lost,
I think I'm finally scared now,
you think I'm weak... I think you're wrong!
Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation. ~ Kahlill Giran
I myself am the only friend I have.
Whoever says Friendship is easy has obviously never had a true friend!
~ Bronwyn Polson
My best friend... I feel like I've lost him forever, and he was like my touchstone.
~ Reality Bites
Not all scars show, not all wounds heal. Sometimes you can't always see the pain someone feels
I discovered who were my real friends. I just wished that wasn't the way I had to discover.
Real loss only occurs when you lose something that you love more than yourself.
Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.
~ Herman Hesse
