The best kind of friend is the kind you
can sit on a porch and swing with,
never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best
conversation you've ever had.




It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.






Don't go for looks; they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile because it
takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile.



May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow
to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy.


Always put yourself in others' shoes.
If you feel that it hurts you,
it probably hurts the other person, too.


When you were born, you were crying and
everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die,
you're the one who is smiling and
everyone around you is crying.

So many thoughts here but let me pick up the friend one.

Today I had send-off party for a friend who is moving to other city. He was around me for 6 years and he transitioned from a stranger to family. I knew he was hopping to other city since more than a month but only today realized how much I am going to miss him and his family.

Not to mention the home made food round the clock accessible by just a phone call. Bachelor friend tag was the food coupon.

jac 8:55 PM  

Lovely quotes, Lalitha !

I like the last three lines of the third one.

For me, a smile is so very important and I am thrilled when I replace some one's smirk, to a smile...through the eyes.

A smile is not a smile if it is not from the eyes.

I am beginning to understand why you are so popular here.

Anali 9:11 PM

My fav quote from this is:


**It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

just so true! And it's also true that once u've lost what u had, u start appreciating everything else in ur life even more.


Keshi.
