“I still may not know what I want to be when I grow up but I do know that someday I want to live in a house filled with my books and travel souvenirs. And the walls that aren’t covered in bookshelves will be covered with photos of my family and friends. When I leave the house I will be going to a job I love, and I’ll return to a person I love. So, that’s the dream I’m working on.”

It should be! Continue reading Aliciousquotes: Do more of what makes you happy
Even though I never read (or was read to) Dr. Seuss when I was a child, I have still come to love quotes like this one for their simplicity and genius.

The thunderous roar of a lion protects his family from danger near and far. Whether it has gills, wings, whiskers, or roots, every living being shares the will to live and grow. We are all earthlings. While some animals are protected by laws, or born into loving families, others live painful and lonely lives on factory farms where hundreds or thousands of animals are raised for meat and dairy. But they too live and breathe. They too have feelings and families. We strive for a world where every earthling has the right to live and grow.”

This quote from Mark Twain is something I truly live by. No matter how much it hurt momentarily, in hindsight I was always glad I’d pursued those dreams that didn’t work out for me in reality – because having not even tried would have been so much worse.
Moreoften, however, they do work out, which is really quite awesome.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
