Roose Bolt : It hurt me hearing about his wife

notareal nameblah : I’ve never let my schooling get in the way of my education I won't have a problem with you if you aim high and miss, but I will have a real problem if you aim low and hit If you think you can or if you think you can't, you’re right Rather be a hour early then a minute late You are what you repeatedly do, therefore excellence ought to be a habit, not an act You may be tough, but always remember to be kind Ego is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity, pride is the burden of a foolish person If you’re going to do a job, do it right Good isn’t good enough if it can be better, and better isn’t good enough if it can be best I’m not worried you won't be successful, I’m worried that you won’t fail time to time Son, just stand. No matter how rough the sea you keep standing. No matter what you don’t give up It doesn’t matter to me any longer how long I live, what matters to me most is how I live It is never wrong to do the right thing How you do anything is how you do everything Ask yourself every night, how am I living?

Savanna Miller : I have been bullied for years. 6years. I was always bullied for things I couldn't control, like being ugly, and the way my personality was, how I was to nice, how I'm too sensitive, how dumb I am. Truth is I can't control how I look, I didn't have any friends and I was always lonely so I tried to be as kind as possible, and I used to be suicidal, and I have a mental disorder that kept me from learning. I have scars, and bruses. & made me cry but want to make a difference. "No matter what you don't give up" and now I never will, I will try my best, be kind, never judge, to live my life to the fullest & never give up. and now I ask myself 1 thing every day, for the rest of my life.. So ask yourself too. "How ya living?"
