The Way I See it # 275
When I wake up in the morning, I want to know that my family,friends and fans know what I believe in and what I’m all about.That’s what should be important.

-Robert Randolph
To laugh often and much;to win the respect of
intelligent people and the affection of children;to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends;to appeciate beauty; to find the best in others;to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is have succeeded.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be who you are and say what
you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.

- Dr. Suess
