"Why am I afraid to dance, I who love 
music and rhythm and grace and song 
and laughter? Why am I afraid to live, 
I who love life and the beauty of the flesh 
and the living colors of the earth and sky 
and sea? Why am I afraid to love, I who 
love love love?"

Eugene O'Neill


Every experience in life, everything with which we have come in contact in life, is a chisel which has been cutting away at our life statue, molding, modifying, shaping it. We are part of all we have met. Everything we have seen, heard, felt, or thought has had its hand in molding us, shaping us." 
-Orison Swett Marden
