The most important things in life aren't things.
Anthony J. D'Angelo
The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right.
Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow.
Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I really need it.
Keep a diary, and someday it'll keep you.
(August 17, 1892 - November 22, 1980)
I live for my sons. I would be lost without them.
(July 01, 1961 - August 31, 1997)
The image of myself which I try to create in my own mind in order that I may love myself is very different from the image which I try to create in the minds of others in order that they may love me
W. H. Auden
