“You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could've, would've happened... or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on.”
Tupac Shakur

“Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside while still alive. Never surrender.”
Tupac Shakur
