"Things may influence people to change but it doesn’t force them. They chose to." "Being a nurse isn’t about grades, it’s about being who we are. No book can teach you how to cry with a patient. No class can teach you how to tell their family that their parents have died or are dying. No professor can teach you how to find dignity in giving someone a bed bath. A nurse is not about the pills or the charting. It’s about being able to love people when they are at their weakest moments." “We live life of an unfinished novel, still waiting to be written. Depending on how long we live, the longer the chapters. Depending on how interesting we are, the more we appeal to others. We’re often judged by our covers. Sometimes, some people decide to just quit reading to us. We’re just forgotten until someone finds us. Our characters can develop throughout the novel, but our chapters can never be edited.” "No matter how nice I am to people, there are still some who hates me. Well, it doesn't matter, I was not born to please everyone. :)" If they can't see your worth, stop wasting your time pleasing them. People are often unreasonable, irrational, self-centered. Forgive them anyway. But be strong enough to let go if they can't hold you back. You have done your part, let them do theirs and if time has passed and destiny permits you not, stop wasting your time for nothing. It's not always for them. Now it's for you and yourself alone.
