    oldie...time to recycle it:smile2:



    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 true friendship continues
    to grow, even over the longest distance.
    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 leave loved ones with
    loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

    I believe-
    That you can keep going long after you can't.

    I believe-
    That we are responsible for
    what we do, no matter how we feel.

    I believe-
    That either you control your attitude
    or it controls you.

    I believe-
    That regardless of how hot and steamy a
    relationship is at first, the passion fades and there
    had better be something else to take its place.

    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 money is a lousy way of keeping score.

    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 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.

    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 just because two people argue, it
    doesn't mean they don't love each other, And just
    because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

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

    I believe-
    That 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-
    That you should send this to
    all of the people that you believe in.

    George, you and I (well maybe just you ) believe we can get out of bed in the morning, that's all we need. Don't ya think that's all Phil needs is just for us to hang around him a little? This philosophical stuff is for younger guys. Let them solve the problems of the world. Maybe their book will be on Oprahs book club list. Let's get him in a boat that won't sink and just sail off into the sunset.

    I believe friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.

    I believe the road to success is always under construction.

    I believe you can get a Kleenex to dance if you put a little boogy in it.
