He that can have patience can have what he will.

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them. Disagree with them. Glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world
Are the ones who do.

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
