Quotes Chezon Liked

“Just take this as a warning. Know that there's always a price for not being yourself.”
Benilde Little, Acting Out

“There had been a time when I owned my life and now I felt like I was coming around to myself again. It's like I've finally discovered bones in myself I never knew I had. I discovered that it takes bravery to be one's self. I now know that the only thing I needed to be afraid of was of not finding my true self and having the courage to be me.”
Benilde Little, Acting Out
