Never get too attached to anyone, it will lead to expectations and expectations always lead to disappointments…Anticipate everything and expect nothing.

Expectations may sometimes lead you to disappointments, but the anger of getting disappointment may sometimes lead you to what you expected.

Cut your expectations short lest you wallow in disappointments. But take time to differentiate b/w dreams n expectations or drown in sorrowful displeasure.

The quality of our expectations determines the quality of our action.

I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine.

Rejection doesn’t hurt, expectation does. Lying doesn’t kill, denial does. Forgetting doesn’t heal, forgiveness does.

When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.

Temporarily removed

Do not enter where too much is anticipated. It is the misfortune of the over-celebrated that they cannot measure up to excessive expectations. The actual can never attain the imagined: for to think perfection is easy, but to embody it is most difficult. The imagination weds the wish, and together they always conjure up more than reality can furnish. For however great may be a person’s virtues, the will never measure up to what was imagined. When people see themselves cheated in their extravagant anticipations, they turn more quickly to disparagement than to praise. Hope is a great falsifier of the truth; the the intelligence put her right by seeing to it that the fruit is superior to its appetite. You will make a better exit when the actual transcends the imagined, and is more than was expected.
