    A Quote I Like...

    After 9/11 when the country was gearing up for war I was in a shop and found a bumper sticker with a quote by Ghandi: "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind" I bought the bumper sticker & it is on my rear bumper to this day.

    Quote About Love 8

    Let go of the things that can no longer be fixed. If you force yourself to try and put them back, things will only get worse. Holding on is being brave, but sometimes moving on makes you even tougher.

    I Am Proud Of My Heart

    I'm proud of my heart.  It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,  but somehow it still works. There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.
