“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” - Neil Gaiman I have to make sure to always remember this and to keep it in the back of my mind: “Keep doing what you love. The dancing, the art; and you’ll get somewhere, even though it might not be where everyone wants you to go.” - Ann Ho "There is no exquisite beauty without some strangeness in the proportion." - Edgar Allen Poe "I am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions." - Augusten Burroughs "Save some time to be lazy; it's good for you."
