Eclectic quotations accumulating in Hell's Kitchen, NY, USA.


"People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you
figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you
have expressed outwardly or inwardly.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance
and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem
like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to
Then, without any wrong doing on your part or an inconvenient time, this person
will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and
force you to take a stand.
What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their
work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to
move on.
When people come into your life for a SEASON, it is because your turn has come
to share, grow, or learn. They may bring you an experience of peace or make you
laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you
an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it! It is real! But...only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those things you must build
upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the
lesson, love the person/people (anyway); and put what you have learned to use
in all other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant."
