Quotes About Yourself And Love

"I wish I could say we all lived happily ever after. I cant. But I can say we lived. Our love for Nate lives, and hes left us this piece of himself in his art; it was his gift to us. We know him through his art, and I can take comfort in that. I guess the thing about high school is, its the moment when you start to cross from a being a kid to being an adult, and this journey to know yourself begins. Nates journey ended to early, and I thought I had to run away to some far-off land to start mine. But, for now, it seems to me that I have enough to explore right here. Theres a whole continent to discover in myself, and I know that its love - love for my parents, my friends, my brother, and my art - that will guide me. Love will be my map." - Author: Lisa Ann Sandell
