Kurt Vonnegut: Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
Sky above me, earth below me, fire within me - who has the fire within? We all have the sky above us and the earth below us, but we differ by the fire within us. What lights your fire? How big is your flame?
