A quote for a life well-lived:

“I have forgiven mistakes that were unforgivable, I have tried to replace those who were irreplaceable and tried to forget those who were unforgettable.

I have done things on impulse.

I have been let down by those whom I thought would never let me down but I have also let others down.

I have laughed when It was almost impossible to laugh. I have held someone to protect them. I have made life long friends, I’ve loved and been loved. I have screamed and jumped for joy, I have lived on love and made eternal promises of love.

I have fallen many times.

I have cried while listening to music and also when looking at photos.

I have called someone just to hear their voice.

I have fallen in love with a smile.

I have also thought I was going to die from losing someone special and I did lose them, but I lived! And I still live!

What is really good is to fight with determination, embrace life and live it with passion. Lose your battles with class and dare to win because the world belongs to those who dare to live.

Life is worth too much to be insignificant.”

- Charlie Chaplin

Modern Times (Chaplin)

“He perdonado errores que fueron imperdonables, he tratado de reemplazar los que fueron irreemplazables y trataron de olvidarse los que fueron inolvidables. He hecho cosas impulsivamente. He sido fallo por ésos quien pensé nunca me fallaría pero yo también he fallado otros. Me he reído cuando fue casi imposible reírse. He tenido alguien protegerlos. He hecho la vida amigos largos, yo he adorado y fui adorado. He chillado y he saltado de alegría, yo he vivido en el amor y promesas eternas hechas del amor. Me he caído muchos veces. He llorado al escuchando música y también al mirar fotos. He llamado alguien acaba de oír su voz. Me he enamorado de una sonrisa. ¡Yo también he pensado que iba a morirse de perder alguien especial y yo los perdieron, pero viví! ¡Y yo todavía vivo! Lo que es tan bueno es de luchar con determinación, la vida de abrazo y vivirlo con pasión. Pierda sus batallas con clase y reto para ganar porque el mundo pertenece a los que osan vivir. La vida vale de ser demasiado insignificante.”
~ Charlie Chaplin
