Abraham Lincoln


You can fool some of the people all of the time,
and all of the people some of the time,
but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
Abraham Lincoln
At least 5 people in this world love you so much they would die for you.
حداقل پنج نفر در این دنیا هستند که به حدی تو را دوست دارند، که حاضرند برایت بمیرند.
At least 15 people in this world love you, in some way.
حداقل پانزده نفر در این دنیا هستند که تو را به یک نحوی دوست دارند.
The only reason anyone would ever hate you, is because they want to be just like you.
تنها دلیلی که باعث می‌شود یک نفر از تو متنفر باشد، این است که می‌خواهد دقیقاً مثل تو باشد.
A smile from you, can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you.
یک لبخند از طرف تو می‌تواند موجب شادی کسی شود، حتی کسانی که ممکن است تو را نشناسند.
 Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before he/ she goes to sleep.
هر شب، یک نفر قبل از اینکه به خواب برود به تو فکر می‌کند.
You are special and unique, in your own way.
 تو در نوع خود استثنایی و بی‌نظیر هستی.
Someone that you don't know even exists, loves you.
یک نفر تو را دوست دارد، که حتی از وجودش بی‌اطلاع هستی.
When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
وقتی بزرگترین اشتباهات زندگیت را انجام می‌دهی ممکن است منجر به اتفاق خوبی شود.
When you think the world has turned it's back on you, take a look, you most likely turned your back on the world.
وقتی خیال می‌کنی که دنیا به تو پشت کرده ، یه خرده فکر کن، شاید این تو هستی که پشت به دنیا کرده‌ای.
Always tell someone how you feel about them, you will feel much better when they know.
همیشه احساست را نسبت به دیگران برای آنها بیان کن، وقتی آنها از احساست نسبت به خود آگاه می‌شوند احساس بهتری خواهی داشت.
If you have great friends, take the time to let them know that they are great.
وقتی دوستان فوق‌العاده‌ای داشتی به آنها فرصت بده تا متوجه شوند که فوق‌العاده هستند.


Do you agree with these ideas about love?
Ask your friends what they think!
"It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all."
- Samuel Butler
This is one of the most famous sayings about love. Even if we feel pain when we lose our love, it is a good thing for us. I am not sure I agree with this! How about you?
"Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
- Franklin P. Jones
"Love makes the world go round" is a common saying. It means that everything, even the whole world, depends on love. This man disagrees. Maybe love is not so important. Still, without love, the "ride" in the "car of life", or the "train of life", has no meaning. Just how important is love, in your opinion?
"Love possesses not nor will it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love."
- Kahlil Kibran
This is very poetic. In a conversation, you might say the first half only, and ask your friends if they agree. I wonder if this kind of love is really possible. We often say "This is MY girlfriend" or "This is MY wife". Is love enough by itself, or do we need to possess our love?

"Darkness can not drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
- Martin Luther King Jr.
Do you think it's truly possible to follow in Dr. King's footsteps? What can ordinary people do to "drive out hate"? Does it matter how we live our daily lives or should we wait until we're important people in society?
"True love is like ghosts, which everybody talks about and few have seen."
- Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Do you think you have ever been TRULY in love? Why do people "fall in love"? Why do some people "fall out" of love? Are there different kinds of love? How can we find "true" love?
"The fate of love is that it always seems too little or too much."
- Amelia E. Barr
Have you ever loved somebody who didn't love you in return? If so, what was it like? Have you ever been loved by somebody that you didn't love? If so, how did that feel to you?
"Love is a temporary insanity curable by marriage."
- Ambrose Bierce
What a shocking thing to say! Why do you think he said it? How is love "cured" by marriage? And if love is a disease, do we really want to be cured? How can we keep love alive even after marriage
