Seven sentences intended to encompass all that I stand for? Insufficient and implausible. Instead I have listed the quotes I live by to better represent me as a person.
But that is the beginning of a new story--the story of their passing from one world into a new unknown one, of initiations into new life experiences." --Dostoevsky
"Dance like no one's watching, sing like no one's listening, live life without regrets." --Anonymous
"I need fuel to take flight." --Fiona Apple
"In thoughts of my childhood, the images slipping from me daily--you are the one which will be with me forever." --Justine Kahn
"If not (now) 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it (will) come. The readiness is all
let be." --Shakespeare
"A man cannot be said to succeed in life who does not satisfy one friend." --Thoreau
And now a few of my own:
"In life there are no borders and no limits, only our instincts can lead the way but our hearts hold the final destination."
"Fall asleep each night knowing that upon sunrise a smile awaits you."
"I walk without fear and step with confidence discovering the new place that awaits me. Is this home? For now at least."
"If there are others who come after me, or for those who have come before, I will still know you as my lasting impression. That one memory, that one person, who has after all and after everything been worth it. And in this final departing moment I am not saddened but honored that you were a part of my life." --Lesley (my cousin)
