Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here.” – Eve Ensler

The sound of lawnmowers, of falling leaves, and rain against the window. Pockets of shade and walks along a gravel road. I don’t have a favorite season. I have a favorite feeling.” – Unknown
