“Happy girls are the prettiest.” 

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!” 

“Laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.” 

“The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it's all that matters.”

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” 

“Your heart just breaks, that's all. But you can't judge or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you.” 

“You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.” 

“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.” 

“Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.” 

“Opportunities don't often come along. So, when they do, you have to grab them.” 

“Make-up can only make you look pretty on the outside but it doesn't help if your ugly on the inside. Unless you eat the make-up.” 

“True friends are families which you can select.” 

“If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had. Not the sadness, not my miscarriages, but the joy of everything else. It will have been enough.” 

“I tried always to do better: saw always a little further. I tried to stretch myself.” 

“Good things aren't supposed to just fall into your lap. God is very generous, but He expects you to do your part first.” 

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” 

“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”
