The only thing that is truly yours- that no one can control or take from you, is your attitude. So if you can take care of that, everything else in life becomes much easier."

“The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong at the broken places.

but those that will not break it kills.

it kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially.

if you are none of these you can be sure that it will kill you too, but there will be no special hurry.”

"It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

~Theodore Roosevelt~

At a critical moment I said: "I would rather you go and regret you going, then to stay and regret your staying." Someday I'm gonna learn to keep my mouth shut.
