“Life is Short. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

 

“There are all these books that say we create our own destiny and what we believe is what we manifest. You’re supposed to walk around with this perpetual bubble over your head thinking happy thoughts and then everything is going to be sunshine and roses. Nope, sorry, don’t think so. You can be as happy as you’ve ever been in your life, and shit is still going to happen. But it doesn’t just happen. It knocks you sideways and crushes you into the ground, because you were stupid enough to believe in sunshine and roses.”   (Chevy Stevens, Still Missing)

“Of all the joys on earth, few compare to the crowning glory of achieving against the odds, succeeding in the face of peril, or triumphing over adversity.

Wouldn’t you say?

Yet in every such case, without exception, the poor odds, the peril, and the adversity must come first.”   (Mike Dooley, Notes From the Universe)

“There are worse things than being alone but it often takes decades to realize this and most often when you do it’s too late and there’s nothing worse than too late.”   (Charles Bukowski)

“That’s what you taught me – we don’t have to accept destiny ….  We can create our own future, all of us.  We have the power to rule our lives – we just have to make the choice to use it.”   (Darren Shan, Sons of Destiny)

“There are two paths of which one may choose in the walk of life; one we are born with, and the one we consciously blaze.  One is naturally true, while the other is a perceptive illusion. Choose wisely at each fork in the road.”   (T. F. Hodge)

________ 

 

“Life is short.  Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.  Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trade winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover.”   (Mark Twain)
