Here is a collection of quotes that I have kept coming back to over the years and have finally gotten around to compiling.
"Do it with passion or not at all."
"Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway."
"Sometimes the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to best things that will ever happen to us."
"What ever you decide to do, make sure it makes you happy."
"Do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do."
"Men marry women with the hope, they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariable they are both disappointed."
