235/365 - Life is What You Make It (Marilyn Monroe)

“This Life is what You Make it. 

Not matter what, 
you're going to mess up sometimes, 
it's a universal truth.

 But the good part
 is You get to Decide 
How you're going to mess it up. 

Girls will be your Friends - 
they'll Act like it anyway.
 But just remember, 
some come, some go. 
The ones that stay with you through everything - 
they're your true best friends. 
 Don't Let go of them. 

Also Remember, 
Sisters make the Best Friends in the World. 

As for Lovers, well, 
they'll Come and Go too. 
 And babv, I hate to say it, Most of them - 
actually pretty much All of them 
are going to Break your Heart, 
but you Can't Give up
 because if you give up, 
you'll never find your Soul Mate. 
You'll never find that half 
 who makes you whole 
and that goes for everything.

 Just because you Fail once, 
doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. 
Keep trying, 
Hold on, 
and always, always, always Believe in yourself,
because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? 

So keep your Head High, 
keep your Chin Up, 
and most importantly, 
Keep Smiling, 
because Life's a Beautiful thing 
and there's So Much to Smile About.”
  
- Marilyn Monroe

234/365 - Aim For The Light (Karen Marie Moning)


“There are Only Shades of Gray.

Black and White are Nothing more 
than lofty Ideals in our Minds, 
the Standards by which we try to Judge things, 
and map out Our Place in the World 
in Relevance to them. 

Good and Evil, 
in their purest form, 
are as Intangible and 
Forever Beyond 
our Ability to hold in Our Hand 
as any Fae Illusion. 

We can only Aim at Them, 
Aspire to Them, 
and Hope not to get So Lost 
in the Shadows 
that we can no longer Aim for the Light.” 

- Karen Marie Moning

William Shakespeare
