Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary

I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

Age is whatever you think it is. You are as old as you think you are.
There are no miracles for those that have no faith in them.
