Don't ever give in.
Don't ever stop trying.
Don't ever sell out.

But never, ever, ever give up.”

Trust God and believe in good things to come.”

“I don't know you,
But I love you,
Just as God loves me and you.
The sun and the moon
are opposing forces,
But they still greet each other,
Peacefully,
As one awakens in the morning,
Just as the other goes to sleep.
Life has pounded me down
and thrashed me around,
Time and time again,
But I always get right back up,
Because I still love life -
Just as the earth still loves
The rain.
