Everyone understands the nature of war, we also understand that victory depends on the cards that we have been dealt. Some when faced with a bloody battle simply give in, but for some surrender is unacceptable, even though they know it would be a fight to the death.
The world is filled with unlikely friendships. How did they begin, with one person desperately in need and another willing to lend a helping hand. When such kindness is offered, we are finally able to see the worth of those we have previously written off, and before we’ve known it, a bond has formed, regardless of whether others can understand it. Yes, unlikely friendships start up everyday, no one understands this more than the lonely, in fact, and it’s what they count on.
Now and then we all need a little help, so we ask for small favors. But it’s always best to be wary of those eager to come to our rescue. Because even the smallest of favors carries a price tag. Yes, everyone has an agenda, no matter what they may tell us…and in those rare instances where there is no ulterior motive; we’re so taking aback that we may fail to recognize the truth – that a loving friend has just done us an enormous favor.
This is how Bree Van De Kamp finally came to change her weekly routine, she still cleaned on Tuesdays, paid her bills on Wednesdays, and did her laundries on Thursdays, but her Fridays were now reserved for a meeting, a special meeting where she stood in front of people she didn’t know, and said things she didn’t believe, and afterwards Bree would come home and reward herself on the completion of another successful week.
这就是Bree Van De Kamp如何最终改变了自己的每周安排，她仍然在周二打扫卫生；在周三付帐单；在周四洗衣服，但每个周五她要参加一个特别会议，在会议上她站在一群陌生人面前说她自己都不相信的话，然后回到家中犒劳自己，祝贺完满成功的一周。
At that precise moment as Dr Hanson Mills was cutting yet another umbilical cord, other ties were being severed all over town, like the one between a child and a mother who didn’t want him to grow up so quickly, or the one between a case of fine wine and a housewife who hadn’t wanted to admit she had a problem, or the one between a women and the boyfriend who couldn’t forgive her betrayal. The choice to separate from what we love is painful; the only thing worse is when someone we’ve trusted makes the choice for us.
Temptation comes to all of us, whether or not we succumb depends on our ability to recognize its disguise, sometimes it arrives in a form of an old flame, flickering back to life, or a new friend who could end up being so much more, or a young child who wakens feelings we didn’t know we had. And so we give in to temptation all the while knowing come morning, we’ll have to suffer the consequences.
We’ve all done something in our lives us we are ashamed of, some of us have fallen for the wrong man, some have let go of the right women, there’re those who have humiliated their parents and those who have failed their children. Yes, we’ve all made mistakes that diminish us and those we love. But there is redemption if we try to learn from those mistakes and grow.
我们都做过一些自己都感到惭愧的事。有些人爱错了人，有些人错过了爱；有些孩子使父母 丢脸，也有些家长让孩子失望。是的，我们都犯过错使我们爱的人离我们而去。但如果我们 试着从这些错误中吸取教训并成长，就还有挽回的机会。
There’s is a prayer intended to give strength to people faced with circumstances they don’t want to accept. The power of the prayer comes from its insight into human nature. Because so many of us rage against the hand that life has dealt us; Because so many of us are cowardly, and afraid to stand up for what is right; Because so many of us give in to despair, when faced with an impossible choice. The good news for those who utter these words is that god will hear you and answer your prayer. The bad news is that sometimes the answer is no.
祈祷赐给我们力量，让我们能够面对不愿接受的事实。祈祷的力量来自它对人性的洞察力；因为太多的人对我们的生活充满愤怒；因为太多的人过于懦弱，不敢拍案而起；因为太多的 人无法选择的时候，选择对绝望妥协。好消息是敢于把话说出口的人，上帝会听到你的祈祷 并回答你。坏消息是有的时候上帝的答案是否定的。
When the truth is ugly, people try to keep it hidden, because they know if revealed, the damage it will do. So they conceal it within sturdy walls, or they place it behind closed doors, or they obscure it with clever disguises, but truth , no matter how ugly, always emerges, and someone we care about always ends up getting hurt, and someone else will revel in their pain, and that’s the ugliest truth of all.
It’s a shocking moment for each of us that moment we realize we are all alone in this world. The family we take for granted could one day abandon us; the husband we trust so implicitly might betray us; the daughter we love so deeply perhaps won’t return to us. And then we could end up all by ourselves.
This is the street where I used to live, and these were the people with whom I shared my life. I met them the day they moved in, and I saw what they brought with them – beautiful dreams for the future and quiet hopes for a better life not just for themselves, but for their children, too. If I could, would I tell them what lies ahead? Would I warn them of the sorrow and betrayal that lie in store? No, from where I stand now, I see enough of the road to understand how it must be traveled. The trick is to keep moving forward to let go of the fear and the regret that slow us down and keep us from enjoying a journey that will be over too soon. Yes, there will be unexpected bends in the road, shocking surprises we didn’t see coming, but that’s really the point, don’t you think?
Every storm brings with it hope that somehow by morning, everything will be made clean again. And even the most troubling stains will have disappeared. Like the doubts over his innocence, or the consequence of his mistake, like the scars of his betrayal, or the memory of his kiss. So we wait for the storm to pass hoping for the best, even though we know in our hearts some stains are so indelible, nothing can wash them away.
Have you met the perfect couple? The two soul mates whose love never dies? The two lovers whose relationship is never threatened. The husband and wife who trust each other completely. If you haven’t met the perfect couple, let me introduce you. They stand atop a layer of butter cream frosting. The secret of their success? Well, for starters, they don’t have to look at each other.
We all carry something with us. Of course, it’s nice if we travel with some one who can help lighten the load. But usually, it’s easier to just drop what we’ve been carrying so we can get home that much sooner. Assuming, of course, there will be someone there to greet us when we arrive. Why do we clutch at this baggage, even when we’re desperate to move on? Because we all know there’s a chance we might let go too soon.
We all have our reasons for rewriting history. Sometimes we need to provide ourselves alibis. Sometimes we wanna hurt someone who has hurt us, and then there are times we just wanna spare ourselves embarrassment. Of course, there are some who feel that to rewrite history is just another way to lie. But what is history anyway….But a set of lies agree depend?
Sabotage, everyone is capable of it. But some go about it more cruelness than the others.Like the ones who create vengeance… Or the ones who hunger for love. Or the ones who were determined to burn bridges. And then there are those who simply wants something…Something that belongs to someone else.
There is a place in St. Timothy church where sinners go to confess their sins. And once they are done, they expect absolution.But the truth is, not all confessions are worthy of such forgiveness.Most who unveil his agendas deserve the condemnation they receive.Most who disclose revengeful motives marry the punishment that follows. Only the truly repentant at any right at all expect a second chance. Were just why it’s best to think twice before you confess.Especially if you don’t know what it is you’re confessing to.
St.Timothy 教堂有处罪人忏悔的地方,当他们忏悔完，都期待能得到宽恕,但事实上，不是所有忏悔都值得被原谅。大多数人，秘密计划败露了,得到应有的谴责。大多数人, 报复动机暴露了,得到随之而来的惩罚,只有真心悔过，才有权利获得第二次机会。这就是为什么最好在你忏悔前先三思而后行…尤其是如果你不知道你在忏悔什么.
Sweetie, we can’t prevent what can’t predict.Isn’t there anything I could do? Yes, yes. You can enjoy this beautiful day.We get so few of them.
There are so many things we wish we could tell the young.We’d like to persuade them not to grow up so fast.But they won’t listen.We want to tell them the beauty face but they refuse to believe it.We worn them that their actions will have consequences, but still they defy us.Suddenly the young can began to understand the world is a dangerous place. So it’s up to us to do anything we can to protect them, Absolutely anything.
Dangerous men walk among us.And we can’t always be sure who they are or what secret they hide.But once our suspicious are confirmed,We can take action.Once their agenda were revealed,We can take steps to protect ourselves and those we love. Yes, dangerous men can cause great harm, But sometimes the greatest dangerous they pose is to themselves.
There’s a reason people can’t wait for Christmas, and it has little to do with family reunions. Or curling up with a cup of eggnog.with that unexpected kiss beneath the mistletoe，or receiving a present from a special someone. No, people look forward to Christmas.Because they know, it’s a time for miracles.
It’s a dangerous world. So we all look for protection. And whether we find it in the arms of our mother, or at the end of a jagged blade, or in the kiss of our sweetheart, or at the end of a barrel. We do what we have to feel safe.
Because we know somewhere in the world there are those who would do us harm.
Yes, it can happen so quickly. Life as we know it can change in the blink of an eye. Unlikely friendships can blossom. Important careers can be tossed aside. A long -lost hope can be rekindled. Still, we should be grateful for whatever changes life throws at us, because all too soon the day will come when there are no changes left.
Recapturing the past is a tricky business. While most memories are simply souvenirs of a happier time, others can be quite deadly.
In every housewife’s closet, there’s an article of clothing that tells you more about its owner than she would want you to know. It might be a T-shirt that she despises but wears without complaint. Perhaps it’s some lingerie, she knows isn’t hers, but refuses to discuss… Or a dress she once loved, that she can no longer bear to look at this. You can learn a lot about women from what they choose to wear. You can learn even more by what they choose to take off, and who they take it off for.
It’s so easy to spot the lonely ones. They’re the people who tell stories to their plants, and whisper secrets to their pets, and have arguments with their TV, and the loneliest of all are the ones who talk to people who are no longer there.
Passion. It’s a force so potent we still remember it long after it’s faded away. A drive so alluring it can push us to the arms of unexpected lovers. A sensation so overwhelming it can knock down walls we built to protect our hearts. A feeling so intense it resurfaces even though we try so hard to keep it buried. Yes, of all emotions, passion is the one that gives us a reason to live and an excuse to commit all sorts of crimes.
Power, it’s the type of thing most people don’t think about, until it’s taken away. Whether it’s the political power of the many, or a lover’s influence over just one. We all want some sort of power in our lives, if only to give ourselves choices. Yes, to be without choices, to feel utterly powerless, well…it’s a lot…like being alone…in the dark.
能量，多数人平日里毫不在意，直到有一天猝然消逝才会察觉。不论是大众的政治权力，还 是恋人间亲亲我我的影响。人生中我们都需要某种能量，哪怕只是给我们一些选择。是的， 假如连选择都没有，假如连一丝能量都没有，那么在黑暗中，蔓延开来的，就是无边无际的 孤独。
Gossip–it’s just a harmless form of recreation. It’s careless talk that deals in polite fiction. It’s nasty speculation that’s based on not-so-polite fact. How do we protect ourselves from the numerous string of such idle gossip? The best way is to just tell the truth.
Anyone can end up a victim…injured by the actions of others .But whether the damage is infected by a cunning ex-wife…or a blow delivered by the object of our affection …the time comes when we must pick ourselves up and continue on our journey .And if we can’t ,then all we can pray for …is rescue .
From the moment we wake up in the morning till our head hits the pillow at night our lives are filled with questions. Most are easily answered and soon forgotten, but some questions are much harder to ask because we’re so afraid of the answer .Will I be around to watch my children grow up ?Am I making mistake by marrying this man? Could he ever truly love me? And what happens when we ask ourselves the hard question and get the answer we’d been hoping for ?Well, that’s when happiness begins.
Family–there is nothing more important. They’re the ones who show up when we’re in trouble, the ones who push us to succeed, the ones who help keep our secrets .But what of those who have no family to rely on ?What happens to those poor souls…who have no loved ones to help them in their hour of need? Well….most learn to walk life’s road by themselves, But a sad few of us…simply…stop trying .
