Favorite Quote:
"Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can. Go for it and don't look back, go for things with your whole heart."


If I can ease one's sorrows,
I shall have lived;
If I can help one mournful soul,
Or hold upone's weak shoulders,
Or love someone
No matter what the consequence
I shall have lived.
