No young man believes he shall ever die. It was a saying of my brother's, and a fine one. There is a feeling of Eternity in youth, which makes us amend for everything. To be young is to be as one of the Immortal Gods. One half of time indeed is flown--the other half remains in store for us with all its countless treasures; for there is no line drawn, and we see no limit to our hopes and wishes. We make the coming age our own.
The vast, the unbounded prospect lies before us.
Death, old age, are words without a meaning, that pass by us like the idle air which we regard not. Others may have undergone, or may still be liable to them--we "bear a charmed life", which laughs to scorn all such sickly fancies. As in setting out on delightful journey, we strain our eager gaze forward.
Bidding the lovely scenes at distance hail!
And see no end to the landscape, new objects presenting themselves as we advance; so, in the commencement of life, we set no bounds to our inclinations, nor to the unrestricted opportunities of gratifying them. We have as yet found no obstacle, no disposition to flag; and it seems that we can go on so forever. We look round in a new world, full of life, and motion, and ceaseless progress; and feel in ourselves all the vigour and spirit to keep pace with it, and do not foresee from any present symptoms how we shall be left behind in the natural course of things, decline into old age, and drop into the grave. It is the simplicity, and as it were abstractedness to our feelings in youth, that (so to speak) identifies us with nature, and (our experience being slight and our passions strong) deludes us into a belief of being immortal like it. Our short-lives connection with existence we fondly flatter ourselves, is an indissoluble and lasting union--a honeymoon that knows neither coldness, jar, nor separation. As infants smile and sleep, we are rocked in the cradle of our wayward fancies, and lulled into security by the roar of the universe around us--we quaff the cup of life with eager haste without draining it, instead of which it only overflows the more--objects press around us, filling the mind with their magnitude and with the strong of desires that wait upon them, so that we have no room for the thoughts of death.

I’ve dedicated this list of wedding traditions and their origins to wedding enthusiasts across the globe. Three of my friends will be getting married shortly and let me tell you, wedding fever is in the air. Weddings are layered with many traditions that have evolved over time. Find out more about the origins of our most common wedding traditions.


One of the most interesting wedding traditions remains with bridesmaids and their original purpose. Nowadays, bridesmaid dresses usually cause the most contention. However, originally bridesmaids dressed exactly the same as the bride. The purpose was to confuse evil spirits and stop them from becoming fixated on the bride, and ultimately prevent them from cursing the newlyweds.


It was actually Queen Victoria who introduced the white wedding tradition back in 1840. Since then, women all over the world have followed her cue. Traditionally, the white wedding gown symbolized purity, innocence and chastity. Not so sure about this nowadays…and many brides are choosing other colors for their gowns.


Beyonce’s "if you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it" lyrics chimes an element of ancient truth. In ancient Rome, when a man put a ring on a woman, he literally took possession of her. The ring symbolized his ownership. Additionally, ancient Romans believed the ‘Vena Amoris’ or ‘Vein of Love’ connected the left ring finger directly to the heart, which is why the wedding ring is only ever placed on this finger.


One of the oldest wedding traditions is the stag night and it hasn’t changed much since the Spartans started it in the 5th Century B.C. Stag nights are when a groom celebrates his last night as a single man. No superstitions, no evolution, just the same celebration with the same purpose and I’m guessing the same outcome – MESSY.


In ancient times, bouquets were made up of pungent herbs and spices like garlic and dill. The reason was to ward off those pesky evil spirits and prevent ill health. Fortunately times have changed and we have evolved to become a less superstitious society. Nowadays, brides carry bouquets made up of fragrant flowers as oppose to pungent herbs


In ancient times, rice symbolized the seed of life. Traditionally it was thrown at the newlywed couple as they departed from the church. This gesture was to wish the couple luck, prosperity and fertility. Nowadays, it's simply seen as littering and apparently it's not so good for native birds. These days, people are replacing rice with ribbons or confetti.


Traditionally speaking, there were two different reasons the groom carried the bride over the threshold. In some parts of the world it was to protect his bride from being possessed by evil spirits. Back then, brides were considered as being highly vulnerable to spirit intrusion. In other parts of the world, it was a way of preventing the bride from appearing too eager to lose her virginity. Nowadays, it’s a romantic gesture, one that I hope sticks around forever.


The love world is big, which can hold hundreds of disappointments;
the love world is small which is crowded even with three people inside. 

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

Don’t waste your time on a man/woman, who isn’t willing to waste their time on you. 

Don’t try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.

Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one,
so that when we finally meet the person, we will know how to be grateful.

It is better bo have love and lost than never to have loved at all. 

Love me little, love me long.

To live in a world without you is more painful than any punishment.
Do you know that no one can replace you in my heart? 

If love is a mountain, then if men go up,
more women they will see while women will see fewer men. 

Love makes man grow up or sink down. 

The only thing you can do when you no longer have something is not to forget. 

To forgive is not to forget, nor remit, but let it go;
to be lonely is not because you have no friends, but no one is living in your heart. 

The worst way to miss someone is to be
sitting right beside them knowing you can’t have them. 

To keep someone around you is not love; love is to let the one you love go freely. 

During the whole life, you will regret for two things:
one is that you don’t get the one you love and the other is the one you love is not happy. 

Don’t cry because it is over, smile because it happened. 

Never expect the perfect man,
it’s not because that you cannot find, but just because there is no perfect man. 

An unacceptable love needs no sorrow but sometime for forgetting.
A badly-hurt heart needs no sympathy but understanding. 

I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you. 

No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won’t make you cry.

It’s often said that you will have the same life as the person you find.
Therefore, different choices make different endings.

Sometimes you need to look back,
otherwise you will never know what you have lost in the way of forever searching.

Most of people are looking forward the crystal-like love—pure without any defect.
However the truth is most people are having the glass-like love.

The one you love also loves you. This is a miracle.
And the god names this as falling in love with each other. 

How it feels when you are loved by the one you love? How could it be like?
If you want to answer it immediately, you shall know how happy you are.

Hope and trust is the tail of a lizard, which can reproduce even after being cut off. 

Do you think that the sourest feeling is to be jealous?
No, the sourest thing is that you have no rights to be jealous.
That’s the sourest thing.

The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them.

To lost in something you love is better than to win in something you hate. 

It is better bo have love and lost than never to have loved at all.

I know that love shall not be compared, but I still used to complaining what he is lack of. 

Never frown, even when you are sad,
because you never know who is falling in love with your smile. 

Love is an impossible meeting.
For example, I am a bird flying in sky,
you are a leopard in forest. We just fall in love accidentally. 

When someone abandons you, it is him that gets loss
because he lost someone who truly loves him
but you just lost one who doesn’t love you.

Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to,
doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have.

Good love makes you see the whole world from one person
while bad love makes you abandon the whole world for one person.

Why to ask so much when you are in love?
The mature never ask the past,
the wise never ask the present
and the open-minded never ask the future.

The key for happiness is not to find a perfect person,
but find someone and build a perfect relationship with him. 

If you leave me, please don’t comfort me
because each sewing has to meet stinging pain. 

Think it over

Things do not change; we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts. 

Think it over……

Today we have higher buildings and wider highways, but shorter temperaments and narrower points of view; 

We spend more, but enjoy less; 

We have bigger houses, but smaller families; 

We have more compromises, but less time; 

We have more knowledge, but less judgment; 

We have more medicines ,but less health; 

We have multiplied out possessions, but reduced out values; 

We talk much, we love only a little, and we hate too much; 

We reached the moon and came back, but we find it troublesome to cross our own street and meet our neighbors; 

We have conquered the outer space, but not our inner space; 

We have higher income, but less morals; 

These are times with more liberty, but less joy; 

We have much more food, but less nutrition; 

These are the days in which it takes two salaries for each home, but divorces increase; 

These are times of finer houses, but more broken homes; 

That‘s why I propose, that as of today; 

You do not keep anything for a special occasion. because every day that you live is a special occasion. 

Search for knowledge, read more ,sit on your porch and admire the view without paying attention to your needs;  

Spend more time with your family and friends, eat your favorite foods, visit the places you love; 

Life is a chain of moments of enjoyment; not only about survival; 

Use your crystal goblets. do not save your best perfume, and use it every time you feel you want it. 

Remove from your vocabulary phrases like "one of these days" or "someday"; 

Let‘s write that letter we thought of writing "one of these days"! 

Let‘s tell our families and friends how much we love them; 

Do not delay anything that adds laughter and joy to your life; 

Every day, every hour, and every minute is special; 

And you don't know if it will be your last. 

I will persist. I will win.

 I will persist until I succeed.    
  In the Orient young bulls are tested for the fight arena in a certain manner. Each is brought to the ring and allowed to attack a picador who pricks them with a lance. The bravery of each bull is then rated with care according to the number of times he demonstrates his willingness to charge in spite of the sting of the blade. Henceforth will I recognize that each day I am tested by life in like manner. If I persist, if I continue to try, if I continue to charge forward, I will succeed.
  I will persist until I succeed.   
  I was not delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep. I will hear not those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious. Let them join the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.
  I will persist until I succeed.   
  The prizes of life are at the end of each journey, not near the beginning; and it is not given to me to know how many steps are necessary in order to reach my goal. Failure I may still encounter at the thousandth step, yet success hides behind the next bend in the road. Never will I know how close it lies unless I turn the corner.
  Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.
  I will persist until I succeed.   
  Henceforth, I will consider each day's effort as but one blow of my blade against a mighty oak. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes the oak will eventually tumble. So it will be with my efforts of today.
  I will be liken to the raindrop which washes away the mountain; the ant who devours a tiger; the star which brightens the earth; the slave who builds a pyramid. I will build my castle one brick at a time for I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking.
  I will persist until I succeed.   
  I will never consider defeat and I will remove from my vocabulary such words and phrases as quit, cannot, unable, impossible, out of the question, improbable, failure, unworkable, hopeless, and retreat; for they are the words of fools. I will avoid despair but if this disease of the mind should infect me then I will work on in despair. I will toil and I will endure. I will ignore the obstacles at my feet and keep mine eyes on the goals above my head, for I know that where dry desert ends, green grass grows.
  I will persist until I succeed.   
  I will remember the ancient law of averages and I will bend it to my good. I will persist with knowledge that each failure to sell will increase my chance for success at the next attempt. Each nay I hear will bring me closer to the sound of yea. Each frown I meet only prepares me for the smile to come. Each misfortune I encounter will carry in it the seed of tomorrow's good luck. I must have the night to appreciate the day. I must fail often to succeed only once.
  I will persist until I succeed.   
  I will try, and try, and try again. Each obstacle I will consider as a mere detour to my goal and a challenge to my profession. I will persist and develop my skills as the mariner develops his, by learning to ride out the wrath of each storm.
  I will persist until I succeed.   
  Henceforth, I will learn and apply another secret of those who excel in my work. When each day is ended, not regarding whether it has been a success or a failure, I will attempt to achieve one more sale. When my thoughts beckon my tired body homeward I will resist the temptation to depart. I will try again. I will make one more attempt to close with victory, and if that fails I will make another. Never will I allow any day to end with a failure. Thus will I plant the seed of tomorrow's success and gain an insurmountable advantage over those who cease their labor at a prescribed time. When others cease their struggle, the mine will begin, and my harvest will be full.

  I will persist until I succeed.   
  Nor will I allow yesterday's success to lull me into today's complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure. I will forget the happenings of the day that is gone, whether they were good or bad, and greet the new sun with confidence that this will be the best day of my life.
  So long as there is breath in me, that long will I persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles of success; if I persist long enough I will win.
  I will persist. I will win.

Age has reached the end of the beginning of a word. May be guilty in his seems to passing a lot of different life became the appearance of the same day; May be back in the past, to oneself the paranoid weird belief disillusionment, these days, my mind has been very messy, in my mind constantly. Always feel oneself should go to do something, or write something. Twenty years of life trajectory deeply shallow, suddenly feel something, do it.
The end of our life, and can meet many things really do?
During my childhood, think lucky money and new clothes are necessary for New Year, but as the advance of the age, will be more and more found that those things are optional; Junior high school, thought to have a crush on just means that the real growth, but over the past three years later, his writing of alumni in peace, suddenly found that isn't really grow up, it seems is not so important; Then in high school, think don't want to give vent to out your inner voice can be in the high school children of the feelings in a period, but was eventually infarction when graduation party in the throat, later again stood on the pitch he has sweat profusely, looked at his thrown a basketball hoops, suddenly found himself has already can't remember his appearance.

Originally, this world, can produce a chemical reaction to an event, in addition to resolutely, have to do, and time.
A person's time, your ideas are always special to clear. Want, want, line is clear, as if nothing could shake his. Also once seemed to be determined to do something, but more often is he backed out at last. Dislike his cowardice, finally found that there are a lot of love, there are a lot of miss, like shadow really have been doomed. Those who do, just green years oneself give oneself an arm injection, or is a self-righteous spiritual.
At the moment, the sky is dark, the air is fresh factor after just rained. Suddenly thought of blue plaid shirt; Those were broken into various shapes of stationery; From the corner at the beginning of deep friendship; Have declared the end of the encounter that haven't start planning... Those years, those days of do, finally, like youth, will end in our life.
