I have no quote that i'm in love with, but here's the one at the top of my head right now:
"An eye for an eye and the whole world goes blind." Gandhi....
I also like : " Don't wait for your boat to come to you, swim out to IT." ANonoymous...

Your life’s stopwatch ticks every second.
It pressurizes you to achieve in the time left
While the pressure lays down on you
You lose focus on the happiness and amusement in life
You forget all the excitement around you
You get so caught up on the moment
And forget that there is more purpose to life.
Remember the purpose of life.
Live it to the fullest
So remember
You Only Live Once

The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by the word YOLO (used at school alot these days). I never understood why this word was so special until I saw this term (or likewise) come up at home alot. My mom's motto focuses on YOLO. I was inspired by this and wrote this poem about it!! :)
