Our individuality is all, all, that we have.

Perhaps you know someone whose heart clutches onto the bittersweet memory of the one who got away. Someone who secretly bears the weight of this imperceptible burden wherever he or she goes, every day of his or her life. Someone who'd gladly travel back in a time machine to a day when paths diverged, to mend together that which has been torn apart, setting destiny back on its rightful track - if only he or she could. Perhaps you know this someone better than you think. And should this someone happen to be you, may you find strength and support in the millions of others who shoulder this burden with you, and may you be reintroduced one day to true love ... in this lifetime and whatever comes after.Sebastian Cole Bittersweet Life Sayings By Sebastian Cole: Perhaps you know someone whose heart clutches onto the bittersweet memory of the one who
With a few exceptions, Fellini's films have failure and despair running through them: Life continues, but I can't imagine 'Felliniesque' as an exclusively uplifting adjective. Fellini's best films are the ones that distill this essence

to perfection.

Bittersweet is the idea that in all things there is both something broken and something beautiful, that there is a sliver of lightness on even the darkest of nights, a shadow of hope in every heartbreak, and that rejoicing is no less rich when it contains a splinter of sadness. Bittersweet is the practice of believing that we really do need both the bitter and the sweet, and that a life of nothing but sweetness rots both your teeth and your soul. Bitter is what makes us strong, what forces us to push through, what helps us earn the lines on our faces and the calluses on our hands.Shauna Niequist Bittersweet Life Sayings By Shauna Niequist: Bittersweet is the idea that in all things there is both something broken and something
The two of us are lIke sunshine and the rain. Together... We are the wellspring of all life. But between us, there will will bloom no flowers. We shall bear no fruit. For us, all of time... Shall be evergreen.

That which can be duplicated loses its gold.Kevin Revolinski Bittersweet Life Sayings By Kevin Revolinski: ...the bittersweet reminder of life's ephemeral pleasures, of opportunities that pass...These experiences would never be
And there were times when one yielded quite shamelessly to the sentimental. They were more likely to be times of crickets, I think, than of birds - when it was impossible not to feel, like another essence of the sunlight, the bittersweet of life that lingers about old houses, and places where men have died, and things that forgotten hands have touched.Harrison Gray Otis Dwight Bittersweet Life Sayings By Harrison Gray Otis Dwight: And there were times when one yielded quite shamelessly to the sentimental.

Life is "heavy" is it not? However, we lighten it with our love of it ... and I have found that whether returned or no ... that love is always worth it.

However, we lighten it with our love of it
Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life.The Verve Bittersweet Life Sayings By The Verve: Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life.
Wounds heal. Scars fade. Awful memories can be overwritten with better ones if given the chance. The little imperfections of our psyches become overshadowed by the people whose love we cherish because they cherish us despite our faults; physical, emotional, spiritual, or otherwise. This thing we call the human condition with all its bittersweet blind corners and senseless humor evolves from within ourselves and not because of some pre-ordained reverie we desire to cast in the constellations.
All in all it is what makes life worth living.
August Clearwing Bittersweet Life Sayings By August Clearwing: Wounds heal. Scars fade. Awful memories can be overwritten with better ones if given the
Unhappily we have to pay in life for everything worthwhile. If we want experience, depth and an understanding of life's infinite phases we have to suffer shock and sorrow and then, if we are strong enough to rise above them, life is a curious bittersweet affair. Too much of its bitter aspect is of course terrible, but too much of unalloyed sweetness can also be bad enough.Pamela Hicks Bittersweet Life Sayings By Pamela Hicks: Unhappily we have to pay in life for everything worthwhile. If we want experience, depth

Meridian


First daylight on the bittersweet-hung
sleeping porch at high summer; dew
all over the lawn, sowing diamond-
point-highlighted shadows;
the hired man's shadow revolving
along the walk, a flash of milkpails
passing; no threat in sight, no hint
anywhere in the universe, of that

apathy at the meridian, the noon
of absolute boredom; flies
crooning black lullabies in the kitchen,
milk-soured crocks, cream separator
still unwashed; what is there to life
but chores and more chores, dishwater,
fatigue, unwanted children; nothing
to stir the longueur of afternoon

except possibly thunderheads;
climbing, livid, turreted alabaster
lit up from within by splendor and terror
-- forded lightening's
split-second disaster.
Amy Clampitt Bittersweet Life Sayings By Amy Clampitt: MeridianFirst daylight on the bittersweet-hungsleeping porch at high summer; dewall over the lawn, sowing diamond-point-highlighted
A part of my appreciation for the good which moments bring has come from awareness and recognition. But it has also come from a correspnding sadness which arises from their passing. When something that can never quite be reenacted comes to an end (and all moments are that way), I feel a pensiveness within. This pensiveness gives my life a quality that might be best described as bittersweet. And those moments take on double meaning and richness - because they are here now - and because they will not always be.Bob Benson Bittersweet Life Sayings By Bob Benson: A part of my appreciation for the good which moments bring has come from awareness

She smiled. She was happy, yet sad. Life had never been more bittersweet. She looked at the
sunset. The pink sky was sinking into the deep blue ocean. It was almost as if the sky knew
it was making a mistake, digging its own grave. But for a moment there, at the very moment
before diving into the darkness of the sea, on the golden horizon, the sky shone brighter
than it ever had. It was glorious in its five seconds of fame. It was serendipitously happy,
like all its life had led to that moment. And then it died into the sea, content.
Thisuri Wanniarachchi Bittersweet Life Sayings By Thisuri Wanniarachchi: She smiled. She was happy, yet sad. Life had never been more bittersweet. She looked

He looked at her in bittersweet despair. "Sometimes, Kate, when I'm inside you and your arms are around me, I'm human again. There's a beginning and an end to my life again. And all because of your love. It's been a gift to me, one I've never deserved. But I cherished it."
And maybe he'd destroyed it with the ungodly truth. He didn't know. He drew
a shaky breath, battered by a fresh wave of regret, and his voice trembled. "I thought I had broken your heart a while ago. I didn't know how to make you hear me, and I knew that by telling you the truth, I'd lose you. But here you sit. You haven't flipped out, not visibly anyway, nor accused me of being a liar. And you haven't run in terror, now that you're truly free to go. I don't know what to think. Tell me, Kate ... have I lost you?
Shelby Reed Bittersweet Life Sayings By Shelby Reed: He looked at her in bittersweet despair. "Sometimes, Kate, when I'm inside you and your
It's a bittersweet feeling because this [filming in Chronicles of Narnia] has been a part of my life for six years - from the age of 15 to 21.

But I feel honoured to have been a part of it but the tools I learned from Narnia I'm now taking forward to my next project.Skandar Keynes Bittersweet Life Sayings By Skandar Keynes: It's a bittersweet feeling because this [filming in Chronicles of Narnia] has been a part
She stooped to pick a wild pink rose, avoiding the tiny spines that slivered like unseen glass hairs onto one's fingers. There was little scent, but the creamy softness of the petals like the insides of a dog's ear more than made up for it. She placed one on her tongue, and imagined she could taste the hills, the bittersweet tang of life.Jonis Agee Bittersweet Life Sayings By Jonis Agee: She stooped to pick a wild pink rose, avoiding the tiny spines that slivered like

Pain is a predator when we run from it, it will inevitably chase us down and catch us in its clutches. The goal isn't to wallow in the pain or to avoid it, but rather, to move through it. Pain only holds us hostage when we get stuck in it or try to repress it. Pain is a part of the human experience. Life is a bittersweet journey. Developing the ability to learn from our pain and to cope with it, effectively, is one of the most empowering gifts we can give ourselves.Jaeda DeWalt Bittersweet Life Sayings By Jaeda DeWalt: Pain is a predator when we run from it, it will inevitably chase us down
Beautiful surroundings, the society of learned men, the charm of noble women, the graces of art, could not make up for the loss of those light-hearted mornings of the desert, for that wind that made one a boy again. He had noticed that this peculiar quality in the air of new countries vanished after they were tamed by man and made to bear harvests. Parts of Texas and Kansas that he had first known as open range had since been made into rich farming districts, and the air had quite lost that lightness, that dry, aromatic odour. The moisture of plowed land, the heaviness of labour and growth and grain-bearing, utterly destroyed it; one could breathe that only on the bright edges of the world, on the great grass plains or the sage-brush desert.Willa Cather Bittersweet Life Sayings By Willa Cather: Beautiful surroundings, the society of learned men, the charm of noble women, the graces of
Life is bittersweet. Inside our heads, if we're lucky, we're the same kids as we were when we were young.Hugh Hefner Bittersweet Life Sayings By Hugh Hefner: Life is bittersweet. Inside our heads, if we're lucky, we're the same kids as we
It's not a crime to feel sad, down or depressed. Moving through difficult feelings is an essential part of living life authentically. Though society would have us believe that when we are sad, we need to smack a silly smile on our face and pretend everything is okay. Problems arise when we repress, deny or bury these feelings. We need to know when it's time to seek help and support, to avoid becoming overwhelmed by these types of emotion. Life is a bittersweet symphony, we need to hear every instrument and listen to every note.Jaeda DeWalt Bittersweet Life Sayings By Jaeda DeWalt: It's not a crime to feel sad, down or depressed. Moving through difficult feelings is

And then the Charynite last borns were lifting Quintana on their shoulders and the Lumaterans had Froi on theirs, and she was laughing and he thought he'd never seen her look so beautiful. And over everyone's heads, Froi could see Gargarin and Arjuro staring up at her with their bittersweet smiles, and Froi imagined two boys with the same face all those years ago in a filthy cave beneath the swamps of Abroi, praying for a better life.Melina Marchetta Bittersweet Life Sayings By Melina Marchetta: And then the Charynite last borns were lifting Quintana on their shoulders and the Lumaterans
Three, 300, or 3,000 - these are the number of unknown days, a week, a year, or a decade, each far too precious little and yet, poignantly too much at the same time, to see an irrevocably declined loved one languish and suffer. That fear-ridden, irreversible release lingers in the doorway, but hesitates for reasons we don't understand, leaving us to weep with a mixture of angst and gratitude all at the same time. It is finally ushered all the way in, to comfort and carry our loved one to that Better Place. When the time finally comes, we can be enveloped in a warm cloak of long-awaited acceptance and peace that eases our own pain. It quiets the grief which has moaned inside of us, at least some, every single one of those bittersweet days, weeks... or years.Connie Kerbs Bittersweet Life Sayings By Connie Kerbs: Three, 300, or 3,000 - these are the number of unknown days, a week, a
He wonders by what process virtually any discussion about the war seems to profane these ultimate matters of life and death. As if to talk of such things properly we need a mode of speech near the equal of prayer, otherwise just shut, shut your yap and sit on it, silence being truer to the experience than the star-spangled spasm, the bittersweet sob, the redeeming hug, or whatever this fucking closure is that everybody's always talking about. They want it to be easy and it's just not going to be.Ben Fountain Bittersweet Life Sayings By Ben Fountain: He wonders by what process virtually any discussion about the war seems to profane these
