“We want to go down the paths our idols walked down, but the thing that we forget is that they didn’t walk down paths, because those paths weren’t there yet. They created them.” — Hank Green, author
“When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.” -— Jean Shinoda Bolen, psychiatrist
