    To hold nothing back. To lay it all on the line – your reputation, your success, your comfort. It's that moment when fear is overcome by faith. Live free - It's not the liberty to do whatever you want whenever and wherever you want. But rather, it's living in accordance with...

    "The Heart is a lonely hunter with only one

    desire! To find some lasting comfort in the arms of another's fire ... driven by a desperate hunger to the arms of a neon light, the heart is a lonely hunter when there's no sign of love in sight!" Carson McCullers, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter

    “If you wish to glimpse inside a human soul

    and get to know a man, don’t bother analyzing his ways of being silent, of talking, of weeping, of seeing how much he is moved by noble ideas; you will get better results of you just watch him laugh. If he laughs well, he’s a good man.” Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    In life, you will realize there is a role

    for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you, and some will teach you. But the ones who are truly important are the ones who bring out the best in you. They are the rare and amazing people who remind you why it's worth it.
