Many Taroists regard the Fool as the most important Tarot card. Many say the Fool represents everyman, and
every woman, inquisitive, exuberant, equipped with all the tools for happiness and success, but sometimes oblivious to the opportunities, pitfalls and pinnacles awaiting him on his journey.
The other Tarot cards represent the trends, events and people in his life, but the Fool in ways represents us as the seekers of knowledge and happiness, stumbling our way through life's challenges, pain and pleasures.
The Fool has many desirable qualities. Among them, openness, willingness to experiment and a great desire to have fun.

By trying we can easily learn to endure adversity--another man's I mean.

The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them.
Don't try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.
Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.
I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.
Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.
To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
Don't waste your time on a man/woman, who isn't willing to waste their time on you.
Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the person, we will know how to be grateful.
Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened.
There's always going to be people that hurt you, so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust next time around.
Make yourself a better person and know who you are before you try and know someone else and expect them to know you.
No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won't make you cry.
Love may make the world go round but first ask yourself 'is your journey necessary'? If love is within then can we ever be without?
