Quote by Katherine Mansfield
I'm treating you as a friend asking you to share my present minuses in the hope that I can ask you to share my future pluses.
One cannot divine nor forecast the conditions that will make happiness; one only stumbles upon them by chance, in a lucky hour, at the world's end somewhere, and hold fast to the days, as to fortune or fame.
Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money.
In love, unlike most other passions, the recollection of what you have had and lost is always better than what you can hope for in the future.
What lies behind us, and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
I got my grammar correct today. I always faced problems in present, past and future tenses. I loved you. I love you. I will love you forever.
Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest. It's about who came, and never left your side.
The great thing in the world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving.
I cut myself in the finger, and it pains me: this finger is a part of me. I see a friend hurt, and it hurts me, too: my friend and I are one.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
When you truly love someone, you don't judge them by their past. You leave it there. Just be happy that their future belongs to you.
A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future and accepts you just the way you are.
Look closely at the present you are constructing: it should look like the future you are dreaming.
A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.
