If you aren't happy, you aren't really living. People say you should
judge whether or not you're alive by whether or not you're breathing,
but I disagree with that. I think, in order to judge if you are truly
alive, you must look at the moments in your life that have taken your
breath away.
~ Michele Metych
To dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of
the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the

that is the courage to succeed.

your brothers, the school, the teachers - you can blame
anyone but never blame yourself. It's never your fault.
But it's always your fault, because if you wanted to
change, you're the one who has got to change. It's as
simple as that, isn't it?"
...... Katherine Hepburn

you're scared to death.
