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.
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.
In life have a friend that is like a mirror and shadow; Mirror doesn't lie and shadow never leaves.
Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
If you don't leave your past in the past it will destroy your future. Live for what today has to offer, not for what yesterday has taken away.
Many men are loved by their enemies, and hated by their friends, and are the friends of their enemies, and the enemies of their friends.
