"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage."
"Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do."
"Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back - a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country."
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming 'Wow! What a Ride!' "
Hunter S. Thompson
"Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people...go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how they'll turn out."
