Author Quotes

If a man, who says he loves you, won?t tell you the details of a private conversation between him and another woman you can be sure he is not protecting your heart. He is protecting himself and the women he has feelings for. Wise women simply see things as they are, not as their low self-esteem allows.

If you could do one thing to improve yourself today, it would be this: Rid yourself of bias. If you can do this, you can learn to listen. If you learn to listen, then you can learn to communicate. If you can communicate, then you can begin to verbalize your feelings. When you verbalize your feelings, then you can release stress and frustrations. When you free yourself of what bothers you, then you can fully give yourself to others. When you come this far, then you have learned to grow spiritually.

If you want peace in your life, you have to stop declaring war.

Impossible has always been a dare.

It amazes me that people think their soul mate is going to show up in their life at this predestined time and be this flawless person. A true soul mate is a mirror of yourself, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. Sure, they have a common upbringing, similar interests but they have the one thing you don?t have which is the introspection to help you become great. What use is a soul mate if they can?t help free you from yourself so you can live your life mission?

A best friend is the only one that walks into your life when the world has walked out.

A balanced life isn?t to do as we please, but to learn to do what is right. A person that is truly free in life doesn?t try to balance the good and evil inside him. He fearlessly fights the war between his heart and mind, by choosing one path of standards to live by that will end suffering for himself and others.

A boy has other people do the talking for him; a man speaks his mind.

A brilliant mind was first a listener that observed the actions of the people that loved and hated them, then found a way to express their feelings, when real communication was lost.

A broken soul doesn't invest in boundaries because the world has crossed them, without mercy.

A brother who stands up for their sister's honor is the best brother in the world. However, sometimes their love can get you into a heck of a lot of trouble.

A competitive and insecure woman will tell you that true love is never giving up on someone you're in love with. A confident and spiritual woman knows that moving on doesn?t mean you never loved someone. She realizes that letting go is what God needs her to do because both your happiness and hers requires taking different journeys for spiritual growth. Letting go is sometimes the hardest thing, but it is the most real love you will ever experience.

A coward talks to everyone but YOU.

A deceitful man will go as far as to trample all over a woman?s reputation and spirit, in order to prove to his ex-love that he was faithful. The irony, is he is still in love with his ex and the new woman in his life doesn?t even realize it.

A fantasy is nothing more than a dream you were too scared to chase.

A foolish woman believes that loyalty is automatic. A wise woman knows that it is earned.

A goal will always tell you where you don't want to be.

A heart worth loving is one you understand, even in silence.

A life out of balance is a person that doesn?t believe happiness can be achieved now, or in the future. It is as fleeting as the wind.
