"You can't live your life worrying that the world is staring at you.When you let people's opinions make you self conscious you give away your power....

"Why are my boys such incredible musicians - violinists, violists, pianists . . .
Why have I spent hundreds of hours of my life practicing with them, going to lessons, sacrificing . . .
Not because we expect you to major in music,
Not because we expect you to play all your life, 

Not so you can relax,
Not so you can have fun,
But - so you can be human,
So you will recognize beauty,
So you will be sensitive,
So you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world,
So you will have something to cling to,
So you will have more love, more compassion, more gentleness, more good,
In short . . . more life.
What value will it be to make a prosperous living unless you know how to live?"

"You are what you choose to be!" -- Iron Giant

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result." -- Albert Einstein

"If you can laugh at it, you can live with it." -- Marjorie Pay Hinckley

"In the end that was the choice you made, and it doesn't matter how hard it was to make it.  It matters that you did."  
- Cassandra Clare, City of Glass
