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.
Dave Grohl, of the Foo Fighters and Nirvana. Probably the only person to go from one of the greatest rock bands of all time to forming an even more successful band and winning 6 Grammys after the death of his best friend/band mate. Keep on rocking, Dave.
