Be not as others are,
but simply as who you are.


I hope you are all doing fine.

It is a very dangerous thing to listen. If one listens one may be convinced; and a man who allows himself to be convinced by an argument is a thoroughly unreasonable person.

Anyone can put you on the right path
but they can't make you walk it, you have to make that first step
