“Three months ago, if you asked me, I would have told you that if you really loved someone, you’d let them go. I wanted her to know the truth before anything else. For years, I protected her, biding my time, until the day she went into the Nevernever after her brother. I'm a high school dropout, which I'm not proud to say, ... And I just couldn't get inspired by someone who didn't want to be there” ― Hilary Swank “Two people with mental issues in a relationship does not work. They discourage you, instill fear in you, hold you back, push you down and never encourage you to fly forward.But now I look at you, and I dreamed about Maggie, and I see that I’ve been wrong. I had some teachers that I still think of fondly and were amazing to me. It's like sitting in a boat and neither one has an oar to row the other to shore. When I have kids, they'll already be born with propellers with added wings.If you really love someone, Allie, I think you have to take them back.” ― Jodi Picoult, “All I know is that I've wasted all these years looking for something, a sort of trophy I'd get only if I really, really did enough to deserve it. I know what love is, and I’ve lostmy fair share, too. You can meet your mirror image in life, but that doesn't mean you should marry him.” ― Shannon L.

That's what I want now, and I think it's what you should want too. Always allow your kids to keep humming with dreams and ideas that fuel their passions. If you have a really strong determined kid, they'll go out there killing themselves trying to do the unachievable just to prove you wrong.
I waited because I didn’t want to lie about who I was. And for the first time, I wanted to kill you as much as you wanted to kill me.” ― Julie Kagawa “I believe the world is divided in three groups: givers, takers and the few that can balance both impulses. It is the currency of compassion and kindness, it is what separates good people from the rest. If you are a giver, it is wise to define your boundaries because takers will take what you allow them to; all givers must learn to protect that about themselves or eventually, there is nothing left to give.” ― Tiffany Madison “The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized - never knowing.” ― Jim Rohn “I ended up dropping out of high school.
