The Words I Live By

"Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are."
-John Wooden

"I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions."
-Augusten Burroughs

"The trick is to enjoy life. Don't wish away your days, waiting for better ones ahead."
-Marjorie Pay Hinckley

"You are braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
-Christopher Robin

"You can waste your life drawing lines, or you can live your life crossing them... Here's what I know, if you're willing to take the chance, the view from the other side is spectacular. Even the biggest failure, making even the most intractable mistake sure beats the hell out of never trying."
-Dr. Meredith Grey
