“I ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders.
‘Lose this day loitering, ‘Twill be the same story Tomorrow — and the next more dilatory. Then indecision brings its own delays, and days are lost lamenting over days! Are you earnest? Seize this very minute! What you can do, or dream you can – begin it! Courage has genius, power and magic in it. Only engage, and the mind grows heated. Begin it, and the work will be completed.’
Never ask a barber if you need a haircut.
Old West Proverb
The old woman looks after the child to grow its teeth and the young one in turn looks after the old woman when she loses her teeth.
~ Akan (Ghana, Ivory Coast) proverb
~ Malawian proverb
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
“People use drugs, legal and illegal, because their lives are intolerably painful or dull. They hate their work and find no rest in their leisure. They are estranged from their families and their neighbors. It should tell us something that in healthy societies drug use is celebrative, convivial, and occasional, whereas among us it is lonely, shameful, and addictive. We need drugs, apparently, because we have lost each other.

~ Gabon proverb
“ That’s the pathetic thing about high school. Everyone tries so hard to be something they aren’t. It’s gotten so I don’t know who I am, so how can I even try to be who I am, much less who I’m not?
My problem is that I don’t even fit in with the misfits.
I don’t fit anywhere.”
― Katie Alender, Bad Girls Don’t Die
We are all wanderers of this earth, our hearts are full of wonder and our souls are full of dreams.
