One of my favorite quotes

Charity is the root of all good works. —Saint Augustine
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved. —Helen Keller
A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity. —Buddha
Only those who attempt the absurd can achieve the impossible. —Albert Einstein

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.

Your truest friends are the ones who will stand by you in your darkest moments-because they're willing to brave the shadows with you-and in your greatest moments-because they're not afraid to let you shine. —Nicole Yatsonsky
