*“You have to learn to smile through your pain. Sometimes it’s all we got.”*
"For giving me a life worth living. I know I’m not worth it, and that I don’t deserve it, but I swear to the gods I finally believe in that I will spend every moment I have left making you happy and trying to be worthy of you.”
