 I know I will be judged, by all those who are to watch, and compared. But my lesson is this: I don’t give a shit. You cannot let a fear of failure, or a fear of comparison, or a fear of judgment stop you from doing what’s going to make you great. You cannot succeed without this risk of failure. You cannot have a voice without the risk of criticism. And you cannot love without the risk of loss. – Charlie Day

+ This quote:

Beautiful people like her are naturally elusive. You can never fully have her, her spirit was born free and had no intentions of changing. Her essence was meant to be shared, and experienced, but on her own terms, not to be possessed and controlled by outside standards or expectation. She was comfortable in her skin, and secure in her own thoughts. Her being attracted attention but she desired much more than to be seen; her appetite was for something bigger than herself. She was here to teach us that it’s less about how you get what you desire and more about how you treat what you value. How effort and appreciation can arrest the heart, and how patience and thoughtfulness can consume the mind. She only desired to be loved fully, but never controlled, she wasn’t here to be handled. And though she was misunderstood by the fearful, and seemed as a bit reckless by the careful. She still existed, whole and unashamed. She was free, alive and full of life in her own world. And it was beautiful to see. – Rob Hill Sr.
