I don't worry 'bout things that I can't change

“We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.”
--Tom Stoppard

“Time’s fun when you’re having flies.”

Fear less, hope more
Whine less, breathe more
Talk less, say more
Hate less, love more
And all good things are yours
--Swedish Proverb

“Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don’t turn up at all.”
--Sam Ewig

“Everyone tries to define this thing called Character. It’s not hard. Character is doing what’s right when nobody’s looking.”
--J. C. Watts

Baby come home, baby don't even bother, baby you are not my baby anymore.

You fit just right. No fireworks, no champagne on New Year's Eve out of the bottle. Not the ride of your life, but that cup of coffee in the morning. It's the things that keep us warm and it's where we are happy, not wanting to stuff our faces. We're just looking to sit in the sunlight, hopefully a little breeze.

The trouble is that you think you have time.

"Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability."
--Sam Keen

"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity."
--Dorothy Parker

"I don't know much about being a millionaire, but I'll bet I'd be darling at it."
--Dorothy Parker

It's not a secret if it's half known

“Man, these are brutal. Kind of want to fold you up in a big comforter and give you a hot chocolate or something — tell you it won’t feel so bad in the sunlight tomorrow.”

Standin' proud, standin' tall
Standin' smack dab in the middle of it all
I don't worry 'bout things that I can't change

“A goal is a dream with a deadline.”
--Napoleon Hill

It doesn't matter if others are interested. It's about you taking your stuff and shouting out into the void.

Perhaps imagination is only intelligence having fun.

Time doesn't exist. Clocks exist.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

If you believe, you'll touch the sky.
If you dream, you'll land on the moon,
If you have faith, you'll become someone.
If you have hope, things will fall into place.
If you breathe, everything will be okay.

Every oak tree started out as a couple of nuts who decided to stand their ground.

"When you taste this one, you can still sense the heaviness left behind. It's the shadow under the sweet, the question on the tip of your tongue."

Maybe you had to leave in order to really miss a place; maybe you had to travel to figure out how beloved your starting point was.
