Its knowing that life is short, and the moments we choose to fill our cup wiht should be purposeful and rich. That we should be present for life, that we should drink deeply. And thats perfection. And my dad and my mom and my family-my past, present, and future with Nella, what the world may view as broken or damaged-have taught me what true beauty really is." - Author: Kelle Hampton

Quotes About Forcing Your Beliefs On Others

When the beautiful and/or reasonably erudite do the same thing to sit on the library steps and read poetry, you think they are on to something deep.
