Apple Inc.
“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Apple Inc.

“I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”

Description: This is for the first monthly writing challenge that I had in my group, YAholics Anonymous! featured. I thought since it was going to be a monthly thing, well then *shrugs* might as well keep it all in one place. Cheers for my organisation skills. Anyway, if anybody wants to comment or review, they're free to do so. I'm open to criticism. Be as harsh as you would like Link: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1439425-writing-challenge-august-5th-august-31st
