I *believe* in  angels.

I believe that pets love you no matter what you look like.

I believe that eveyrthing happens for a reason.

I believe there's never enough time.

I believe all people have good inside them.

I believe that nothing is stronger than human ability under crisis.

I believe in smiling and waving to people I don't know.

I believe a Twinkie can make any child's boo-boo not such an awful thing after all.

I believe that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for a lifetime.

I believe that money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I believe rumors and gossip hurt people.

I believe those people who look perfect probably aren't.

I believe that those who think I lost to them because they were better than me are the ones who needed to win.

I believe in leaving a legacy of positivity.

I believe in faith, hope, and charity.

I believe in working beside people I respect.

I believe my problems may not be as bad as the next person's and reminding myself of that fact isn't such a bad thing.

I believe that animals have just as many rights as humans do.

I believe in always showing your true colors and being yourself and never try being something you're not.

I believe the heart and soul are more important than the outward appearance.

I believe that people may not remember what you said or what you did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.

I believe in the spirit of Christmas.

I believe God doesn't need your belief to exist.

I believe in the power of prayer.

I believe of all the things to believe in, why not yourself?

I believe life's struggles make you a stronger person.

I believe in letting go.

I believe in routing for the underdog.

I believe guns are not the cause of today's violence. I believe there is a brain that directs the finger of any gun. I believe blaming television as the root of violence is a cop-out for politicians who have agendas to follow and people to please. I believe the root of America's social problem stems from the base of the society, and that's what goes on behind closed doors within families and homes. I believe in the presence of the American father in the American home and what that single man means to the children who will become tomorrow's potential gunmen or political leaders.

I believe that the world never stops because your world has been destroyed. The sun continues to rise even though you no longer want it to, and children play, and life marches on.

I believe that heroes are born to every family and you should always tell your heroes who they are.

I believe that the child who looks like they have it all, probably doesn't.

I believe in the mercy rule, but I don't believe in pity because I believe everyone has a bad day.

I believe in inconsistencies and imperfections, and I believe in mistakes.

I believe in learning the hard way.

I believe the lessons we teach children, forthright, will be the ones they take for granted. Its the ones they learn through us that we didn't set out to teach that they'll take with them as lessons for the rest of their lives.

I believe that even when you think you feel so drained that you have nothing left to give, when someone cries out to you, you will find the strength to give.

I believe in random acts of kindness.

I believe people who cannot win with dignity have issues that far outweigh the purpose of the game.

I believe first impressions aren't always representative of how a person really is.

I believe the stronger you try to hold someone back from something, the more they will fight to overcome your obstacles and the stronger their desire will be to attain that goal. I believe the fight will burn within them until they triumph and become victorious, or until they break themselves trying. 

I believe in saying "I'm sorry" and "I was wrong" even though I'll be the first to admit I have a hard time doing it myself.

I believe in walking the walk more than talking the talk.

I believe we'll have to take responsibility for our actions, if not now, definitely later.

I believe people can change ~ for the better.

I believe people who can't forgive are the ones who need it most.

I believe birds of a feather flock together but I cannot condemn someone simply for being friends with an individual I do not care for. I believe arriving at a conclusion based simply on that fact would be so narrow minded as to be considered entirely superficial.

I believe that loss doesn't make me weaker. I believe it makes me stronger.

I believe in smiles and waves to people I don't know, but who I think could use it.

I believe the original thinker is often labeled "rebellious" "insubordinate" and "defiant." I believe we often confuse what we mean to teach children of this world, with what  we actually do teach children in this world. I believe we're guilty of blaming those same confused children for being "defective" or for having disadvantages or disabilities we bred in them, most likely out of our ignorance. I believe the key to success in these children is to fix the faults in ourselves before aiming all our efforts to fix the faults in them.

I believe that you should always end your conversations with kind words and a smile.  You never know when you've spoken to someone for the last time.

I believe that true friends are the ones who remind you of your dreams when you've long forgotten what they were.
