"Associate with the noblest people you can find; read the best books; live with the mighty. But learn to be happy alone. Rely on your own energies, and so not wait for, or depend on other people." -Professor Thomas Davidson
wonderfulyou: Don’t rely on other people to make you happy. Your happiness depends entirely on you. Your life does not lie in the hands of the people around you, or in the situation you happen to find yourself in at this moment. You are not a victim on your circumstances, but rather a powerful being with a choice. The question is: do you allow every ripple of the sea that is this life turn you upside down? Or can you find peace, knowing there
Associate with the noblest people you can find; read the best books; live with the mighty. But learn to be happy alone. Rely upon your own energies, and so not wait for, or depend on other people.
So true. If you're only trying to make other people happy you become miserable. Your relationship should be about making your boyfriend happy. Not making the other people around you happy.
You have to be careful how you help people. Rely on the Lord - you can't save them.
you can't make everybody happy all of the time
People say find who makes you happy and love them forget about everything else... Sometimes that's not the case sometimes you actually can't be with someone no matter how much you or the other person wants it.. Sometimes there is no other choice!!!
Truth: "You can't control other people. You can only control your reactions to them."
"You can't change how people feel about you so don't try. Just live your life and be happy."
You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love.
Spend life with the people who make you happy, not the people who you have to impress. by deeplifequotes, via Flickr
"You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people
Keep people in your life that truly love you, activate you, encourage you, inspire you, enhance you and make you happy.
make me smile
I can't help but wonder what other people see in you to think you are such a wonderful human being. I see the total opposite. You are a sneaky liar that uses people & hurts them for anything that will benefit you....
I'm glad this happens to other people. Seriously the way they make dresses makes me so mad. I really can't wear any of them.
