"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty." -Maya Angelou. "Sometimes it seems safer to hold it all in, where the only person who can judge is yourself." - Sarah Dessen. "Why give people the satisfaction of letting them get the best of you, when you clearly already know that they envy and want to be you. You should feel bad that they are pathetic to want to live their lives through your downfall. People are too weak to follow their own dreams and will find every way possible to try and discourage yours. Its a natural thing, don't curse it, bless it, because these pathetic motherfuckers encourage my conceit." -Nicole Ritchie.
