Top 5 Favorite Quotes!!

1. “I dont belive in miracles, I rely on them”-Yogi Bhajam

2. “She’s a paradox. She is faithful and yet detached. She is committed and yet relaxed. “She loves everyone, and yet no one. She is sociable and also a loner. She is gentle and yet tough, she is passionate but also platonic. In short she is predictable in her own unpredictability.” ~ Unknown.

3. “Look like a girl, act like a lady, think like a man, work like a boss”

4. “I think she’s special. She doesn’t need anyone. Like, thats the thing. Even if we were together, she wouldn’t really need me. She doesn’t belong to anything. She’s off in her own world…”

5. “She doesn’t say “I love you” like a normal person. Instead, she’ll laugh, shake her head and say “youre an idiot” If she tells you you’re an idiot, you’re a lucky man.”
