Turn your wounds into wisdom.” Oprah Winfrey

“You’ve no idea the restraint I’ve created. A word, which in a past life, never held special meaning for me, flows now through the blood of my veins as if to remind me it was always there. Like you, always there. You said I was not strong. So I created strength to fight against these natural feelings which keep me tied to you. I drew a line in the sand so I would not step towards your door again. I have boundaries, strength and pride. What I do not have is you. And that is the only part I wanted. You’ve no idea the restraint I’ve created. You’ve no idea the bold wall I’ve built to keep me out of your compromising arms.”Jamie Weise

Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” Robert Kennedy

“A man is nothing without dreams. A man is called idiot while he dreams. Whatever he does, he’ll be judged and thrown away from the circle of clowns. And yet he needs acceptance and security from sick society, which is discriminatory far too often. But a man is blinded by other people opinions. He wants to fly and they say, “You moron, you can’t do that, it’s forbidden, it’s stupid.” And a man gives up on his dreams.”  Asper Blurry

“I’ve noticed in my life that the people who act as my angels are not some strange angelic creatures that seem almost untouchable, but are more real than that.
