"Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!"
"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
"The best thing in life is to hold on to each other."
"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 always tell what kind of a person a man really thinks you
are by the earrings he gives you."
"I decided very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it."

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

"When you have nobody you can make a cup of tea for, when nobody needs you,
that's when I think life is over."
"Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering - because you can't take it in all at once."
"I'm an introvert...I love being by myself, love being outdoors, love taking a long walk with my dogs and looking at the trees, flowers, the sky."
"I have to be alone very often. I'd be quite happy if I spent from Saturday night until Monday morning alone in my apartment. That's how I refuel."
