"To my young friends out there:

Life can be great, but not when you can't see it.

So, open your eyes to life: to see it in the vivid colors

that God gave us as a precious gift to His children,

to enjoy life to the fullest, and to make it count.

Say yes to your life."

America started the tradition where the

that the President drinks Coke. Liz Taylor

drinks Coke, and just think, you can

drink Coke, too."

think, 'Great, I got another one out of the way'...

Keep moving forward."

There was something about this quote that didn't

sit right with me but I was busy and moved on. -

But I couldn't forget it, so couldn't get past it. -


The problem with it is the word 'attempt.'

Attempt means 'to try' - and trying means

to 'not do' - 'not doing' is not good enough

for doing something great, or even small.

So I'll change this quote to my own way of thinking:




"If you knew you absolutely could not

fail, what great thing would you do?"

"I've also seen that great men are often lonely.

This is understandable, because they have built

such high standards for themselves that they

often feel alone. But that same loneliness is

part of their ability to create."

As if no one had ever tried before,

try to say what you see and feel and love and lose.

She walked with the Universe on
