Back in 2013, I was only 13 years old when I bought a book with my own money for 195 pesos. I'll tell you what, it wasn't just an ordinary romance book. It was one of those "Don't judge the book by it's cover", they said. And they are right, I do agree with them. Why? because it was made by an intelligent human being. I wasn't really a fond of reading but then this book made me turn into a person whom I never thought. I became a bookworm after reading this book called, THE BET written by one of those intelligent, imaginative writers named Kimberly Joy Villanueva.  The book isn't just about a love story, it's also about life, love and everything in between.The way she wrote this book is just one of a kind that will make you relate to it. Her words of wisdom is what I really love. I find this very helpful especially to those people who needs a reminder, motivations and any kinds of inspirations as they're going through some kinds of trials or stages in their lives right now. I am going to write here my favorite quotes from her book that I listed down for over 3 years ago and I still have it. I will also write here some of my favorite quotes from the other books I read so keep reading!

"In love, you play with all your heart or nothing at all."

"Everything happens for a reason. Every mistake, every mix-up, every accident, they all happen to make way for other significant occurrences in our lives or other people's. And sometimes you'll be surprised how a mistake or an accident changes your life, or other people's lives for the better."

"If two people are meant to be together, It doesn't mean they need to be together right now."

"Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind. Love shouldn't be about superficialities. It is only with the heart that can see rightly what is essential is visible to the eye."

"If you love someone, you shouldn't care about their appearances at all. If you do, that's either lust or some infatuation. When you already love someone, you don't just love them because of how they look like, especially after you get to know them. It's because you don't just see them in the same way anymore. You see who they are inside. Now that's true love."

"The beginning doesn't matter. What matters is the end."

"True love is born from hard times."

"When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it."

"Without pain? How could we know joy?"

"We can't help who we fell inlove with. It's even surprising when you find out that everything you want is not going according to what you planned."

"People come and go. They'll drift in and out of your life. Almost like characters in a favorite book. When you finally close the cover, the characters have said their story and you start up again with another book completed with new characters and adventures. Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, not the ones in the past." -The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks

"If you want something to work, you've got to put your love into it."

"If you give from your heart this is the most valuable gift you can give to anyone."

"A past I want to forget, but I cannot. FALLING IN LOVE. It's not always a happily-ever-after story. Most of the time, it's just one of those once-upon-a-time's. Sometimes we have to give up wonderful things just to make everything alright. We have to bleed alone for somebody to smile. We need to let those tears flow just to save the tears of others. We have to break our hearts to fill somebody else emptiness. And there are times were we have to give up our own happiness just to rescue someone else's burden. There's no justice in love. It was never far and IT WILL NEVER BE."

"LIFE AND LOVE:  Love is strange because we can never choose who we love and we can't be sure if the person we love can love us back. Life is unpredictable, unexpected things can happen. In a blink of an eye your life can change forever. We can't help who we fall in love with. Love comes in the least expected places and situations. Life and love are about not knowing everything. So live the life you want and love the way you live."

Will add more soon.....
