Favorite Quote:
“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
― William W. Purkey

I also like this quote by Gnarls Barkley:
"You are the best. You are the worst. You are average. Your love is a part of you. You try to give it away because you cannot bear its radiance, but you cannot separate it from yourself. To understand your fellow humans, you must understand why you give them your love. You must realize that hate is but a crime-ridden subdivision of love. You must reclaim what you never lost. You must take leave of your sanity, and yet be fully responsible for your actions." -Gnarls Barkley, in a letter to the legendary rock critic Lester Bangs

You could change the world you know, if you wanted to. You could change it with your hands behind your back using only your words and the tip of your tongue. Speak your mind and let the words flow out like the wind in autumn. You have your endless talents and imperfections that make you unique and able see the world in your own way. Think. In this world of seven billion how lucky you are to have a chose? A home? A chair to set in while you type away at your HP laptop? You could save a life. Build a well in Zimbabwe. Help a man in who lives in an alley inside a cardboard box, or you could just sit there doing nothing. Next time it’s your birthday, you could give and make a difference instead of taking or demanding something materialistic.
How will you change the world?
