"After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul, and you learn that love doesn't mean leaning and company doesn't mean security, and you begin to learn that kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises, and you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child, and you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans.

And you learn that you really can endure... that you really are strong, and you really do have worth." - Veronica A. Shoffstall

"Did you ever meet someone and have them totally change your life? That every thought you ever had about life and yourself was changed . . . the way you look at life and people and even breathe.

And somehow it has to be learned that it's possible to trust again. And not everyone is going to stare you in the face and lie to you. But it's learning that, that's the hard part. It's not going to happen in a day . . . a week, or a month, but pretty soon you'll begin to realize that not everyone is going to hurt you. And that's when you're happy."

"It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan." - Eleanor Roosevelt
