" Don't fear; instead wonder. Have worries, but never let them go too far. Love, we never know when that defying moment may be. Be free, but never quit caring about yourself. Persevere; your dreams can be what make you. Fight, never with violence, but rather with peace. Guide, teach what you want the world to become. Trust God. He's the only real truth."

" When everything seems down, always look for hope. Don't ever forget about hope. Goodbyes will always be hurtful, if you see a picture it won't replace actually having been there, your good or bad memories will bring tears, and words can never replace those feelings that you had. I've been through more than any person should have to by my age. Through my hardships, I've learned a lot. I've learned that through the hard times, you have to have hope. Hope gets you everywhere and nowhere. Without hope, life isn't the same. Always have hope, wherever you may go."
