“Thank goodness for best friends. For true friends, the ones who love you no matter what.”
Lauren Clark, Stay Tuned

“Spending time, here in Eufaula, has helped me realize that barreling through life at a breakneck pace -- while exciting, sometimes glamorous, and always loads of fun -- has been, at best, a distraction. A useful tool in avoiding personal introspection or thoughts of the future.”
Lauren Clark

“Maintain a bright outlook. Fake it 'til you make it. Smile even though your heart is breaking.”
Lauren Clark, Pie Girls

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Thank goodness for best friends. For true friends, the ones who love you no matter what.”
Lauren Clark, Stay Tuned

“I realized that life is so short: Why waste one minute of it worrying what other people think or say about you, or what score you got on some test? Why not believe what you want to believe, and do what you love?”
Meg Cabot

“Spending time, here in Eufaula, has helped me realize that barreling through life at a breakneck pace -- while exciting, sometimes glamorous, and always loads of fun -- has been, at best, a distraction. A useful tool in avoiding personal introspection or thoughts of the future.”
