Megan Johnson Quotes

"People who you are close with dont understand you. The people you usually lean on have changed. You rely on your other friends that you usually wouldnt tell your secretes, but still, they are there. You move away from the people you trust toward your new found trustees, and the people you called close are mad you because YOUVE changed. So now youre confused, and now you think youve changed. Tell whoever told you that to kiss you on the cheek, and wave good-bye for good."

Quotes About Giving Life Your All

"In scattering the seed, scattering your charity, your kind deeds, you are giving away, in one form or antoher, part of your personality, and taking into yourself part of another; you are in mutual communion with one another, a little more attention and you will be rewarded with the knowledge of the most unexpected discoveries. You will come at last to look upon your work as a science; it will lay hold of all your life, and may fill up your whole life. On the other hand, all your thoughts, all the seeds scattered by you, perhaps forgotten by you, will grow up and take form. He who has received them from you will hand them on to another. And how can you tell what part you may have in the future determination of the destinies of humanity?" - Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky
