Let us represent worthily, for once, the foul brood to which a cruel fate consigned us! What do you say?

And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts & presents aren’t promises. And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up & your eyes ahead… & you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans & futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. So you plant your own garden instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure, that you really are strong & that you really do have worth… and with every goodbye, you learn… – Unknown
