I'm always happy when evoked laughter in humans. Who laughs good laugh, kindness, and infects others. After such a laugh becomes atmosphere: we forget many of life's troubles, inconvenience. In my life more than once played a decisive role is the case. Analyzing the past and thinking about it, I come to the conclusion that it is only those who are looking for one who wants to who is waiting for the appearance of this case and does their best to fulfill your dream, the desire.

Be self-taught, do not wait until you teach life.

In nature, nothing is lost, except of fulfilled expectations.

What is fate? When one track to meet two of the train moving. Rushing, flying at high speed at night, not knowing that an accident could occur. And yet they do not collide. Why? And, apparently, not fate!

What is misery? In my opinion, the loss of those closest to you.

I've already played your time, now - the extra time.

I'll be happy if me then say he was a good man. This does not mean that I always kind. But kindness - in the first place.

I liked to study in humans. And learn from the good things that they were inherent. But the strongest impact made my mom and dad to me.
