We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking up at the stars. - Oscar Wilde
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.-
Live all you can; it's a mistake not to. It doesn't so much matter what you do in particular, so long as you have your life. If you haven't had that what have you had?-
I believe life is short and precious and not to be squandered.
“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.”
― Robert Fulghum
“Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination.”
― Oscar Wilde
