I Believe... Maudlin, Even Cliche, Sentiments Can Still Improve Our Point of View


Some homilies I've come across that I thought you might like:

I Believe...
A Birth Certificate shows that we were born.
A Death Certificate shows that we died.
Pictures show that we lived.

I Believe...
Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass,
It's about learning how to dance in the rain.

I Believe....
That just because two people argue doesn't mean they don't love each other.
Just because two people don't argue, doesn't mean they DO love each other.

I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends,
If we understand that friends change.

I Believe....
That no matter how good a friend is,
They're going to hurt you every once in a while
And you must forgive them for that.

I Believe...
That, even over the longest distance, true friendship continues to grow.
The same goes for true love.

I Believe...
That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.

I Believe....
That it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.

I Believe...
That you should always take your leave of people you care about in a ‘happy place’ (all that "Love you!" crap is automatic and thus artificial),
Indeed, it may be the last time you see them.

I Believe....
That you can keep going
Long after you think you can't.

I Believe....
That we are responsible for what we do,
No matter how we feel.

I Believe....
That true character is revealed in the face of adversity.

I Believe...
That either you control your attitude,
Or it controls you.

I Believe...
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done,
Regardless of the consequences.

I Believe....
That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

I Believe....
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down
Will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry,
But that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe....
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them
And less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe....
That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken,
The world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe....
That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
But we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret.
It could change your life forever.

I Believe....
Two people can look at the exact same thing
And see something totally different.

I Believe...
That your life can be changed in a matter of hours
By people who don't even know you.

I Believe....
That even when you think you have no more to give,
When a friend cries out to you, you will find the strength to help.

I Believe...
That credentials on the wall
Do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe...
That the people you care about most in life
Are taken from you too soon.

I Believe...
The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.
