" Love your children by means of letting them go. Let them experience life by means of giving them freedom. If they get hurt, help them. If they lose their path, guide them but don't stop them from venturing. Don't be over protective because no matter how much you deny it... WE GROW!!!!"

" There's a serious revolution within a man I would call a builder, a nonconformist, and a leader: the war of man vs. self. There's no beginning without tackling self-doubt. There will be many wars from here on in, but none that require such couth and determination. Your true alliance and true monster rest in your own mind."

This was written from a self-transformation. I realized I am my true portal to happiness and my leader to self defeat.

" I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity."

" We are each born, the drivers of our train and we each follow our own journey, along our own track; this is the journey of our life. When we meet someone, partner or friend, we really meet at a common station; the choice to stop is ours alone, but we do so knowing that every stop is really, temporary. The reality is that sooner or later, we must return to our own journey and continue this, until the end of the line. Our ultimate destination is to meet our maker and to be at one with those we have loved and lost before us."

This quote reminds me to be grateful for my challenges and if you have nothing to strive for, life would be really boring.
