My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I’m Happy. I can’t figure it out. What am I doing right?
Love is a great beautifier.
Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.
Character is much easier kept than recovered.

And youre so tired you dont sleep at night /
As your heart is trying to mend/
You keep it quiet but you think you might /

When you do, all you wanna do is cry /
Well maybe you should cry /
