“Laters, baby.”
E.L. James, Fifty Shades of Grey

“Life is filled with challenges, blessing and the awareness that in life there are no guarantees. But one thing I’m sure of, is that for me, I’d rather die regretting the things I’ve done, then to regret the things I didn’t do, but could have. So with this my new motto, I’ve decided to pursue what has lain quiescent in the back of my mind so now I write.”
D.B. Jones

“Life just throws you places, and if you wait, if you listen, you can see the blessings.”
Jaycee Clark

“What doesn't kill you makes you stronger
Stand a little taller
Doesn't mean I'm lonely when I'm alone
What doesn't kill you makes a fighter
Footsteps even lighter”
Kelly Clarkson

“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
