What Will Matter? Ready or not, some day, it will all come to an end. There will be no more surprises; no minutes, hours, or days. All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass on to someone else. Your wealth, fame, and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed. Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear. So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will expire. The wins and losses, that once seemed so important, will fade away. It won’t matter where you came from or what side of the tracks you lived, at the end. It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant. Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant. So, what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured? What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave. What will matter is not your success, but your significance. What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught. What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered, or encouraged others to emulate your example. What will matter is not your competence, but your character. What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many people will feel a lasting loss when you’re gone. What will matter is not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you. What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom, and for what. Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident. It’s not a matter of circumstance but of choice.

Chose to live a life that matters.

Attention is the most basic form of love; through it we bless and are blessed. We love because it’s the only true adventure. Love is like quicksilver in the hand cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it…It really is worth fighting for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk everything, you risk even more. Sometimes love is stronger than a man’s convictions. Love is the master key that opens the gates of happiness. Maybe love is like luck. You have to go all the way to find it. Love stretches your heart and makes you big inside. Love has no awareness of merit or demerit; it has no scale… Love loves; this is its nature. Love is like war: Easy to begin but hard to end. Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other. Where love is, no room is too small.Loves makes your soul crawl out from its hiding place. Love is the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.To love is to receive a glimpse of heaven. A love song is just a caress set to music. Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit. Love is like a violin. The music may stop now and then, but the strings remain forever. Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence. In the final analysis, love is the only reflection of man’s worth….

Love doesn’t make the world go round, love is what makes the ride worthwhile. To love a person is to learn the song that is in their heart, and to sing it to them when they have forgotten. What will survive of us is love. The mind determines what is possible. The heart surpasses it. Give your hands to serve and your hearts to love…..

i don’t understand how love can make you smile, can make you cry, and can make you realize a lot of things…and yes..love hurts…if you don’t experience the pain when you fall in love, then that’s not love after all…we tend to become someone else when we fall in love, we create a new personality that would tell us that “it’s not me”, but you’re willing to still acknowledge the truth that in the long run, that alteration would not aggravate you or your partner…I may not be in a lot of experiences when it comes to falling in love, but being in a relationship..i am bound to discover a lot of things…it hurts when you cry, and even so much pain when you know the person responsible for that state doesn’t know the pain you’re having right now…it hurts when you expect that person to understand you and yet still wishes to be alone..it hurts when you can’t do anything how to make that someone realize your worth…it hurts when you ran out of words–for words are not enough to mend the pieces of a broken heart…it hurts when that person wants to give up and you still want to hold on…it hurts even more when you’re the only one loving…it hurts when you try to fix things and you just can’t—for the situation is already clouded with so many unconstructive judgment…it hurts when attitude impede in the relationship and thus doesn’t want to compromise…it hurts…it hurts…and it would still hurt….BUT….if you love one person, though he doesn’t know you’re crying, you just have to think that those tears are worthy enough to keep it falling down your face…though you expect that person to understand you, you just need to simply understand first and try to comprehend….though that love wants to be alone, just think that when it does, you will have time to reflect to a lot of things….though you need to compromise to a lot of things including your attitude, you just have to take the pain inside and hope that everything would turn out fine, for worst comes to worst…it’s better to have love than not to experience it at all…
