3: We are | I have always been told that what ever you put your mind to you can accomplish.That quote has reshaped my life because things that I would naturally give up on I find my self trying even harder to accomplish that goal. I try to quit but in the end I can always hear my grandfather telling me that a man never gives up. His words have been burnt into my mind along with that quote.
4: Family is what roots me to the earth.They are always around when I need a shoulder to lean on or even if my day is not going so well they will listen .They are my everything my tether to this life. | " I know that my family will all ways be their for me" ("My passion") | WHAT I KNOW | Family always there, always around when I need them. I really feel that without someone in my life that would guide me in the right direction. I would of head down a path that would take me into a dark future. I would be lost without the influence of the people close to me. | The family is one of nature's masterpieces. ~George Santayana

14: Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself. - Harvey Fierstein | Where I'm Going I am from a concrete jungle a city that never sleeps Where dreams are made into a reality But that's all in the past. Now I’m looking forward Trying to create my own path that leads to the stars, As the years go by and time fades away, What used to be "good days" are now filled with dismay. Tomorrow comes, and then again, it goes, And my ambition to become something more grows and grows. Around the corner, yet miles away The life I want now gets closer each day. All I've ever wanted was something to live for, I don't want to be just another person in the crowd. I’ve been basing my life upon what others think; I wish I could go back and redo everything, every time an eye would blink I have to remind myself that one day, I will be free. Free from the rules I followed as a child, Soon I hope to find out who I am, and what I am meant to become, I want to know where I’m going; And I don't need to be reminded of where I came from.
15: Try to discover the road to success and you'll seek but never find, but blaze your own path and the road to success will trail right behind. ~Robert Brault | Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. ~Les Brown
16: I hope your dreams take you to the corners of your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities, and to the most special places your heart has ever known.
17: "Wherever you go, go with all your heart." ~Confucius | =)
18: What I want I want the world to to be free from ignorance.( Declaration from Ignorance) As a young person growing up in this world I have seen many things that I find wrong and I ignore it , one could say that also makes me ignorant of the situation and if all we do is ignore dose that not feed into the statement that ignorance is bliss? Thats why I will no longer be a hypocrite and I will do something .I may not have the power to do something now but one day I will.
19: What I Hope I hope that one day we can live in a world where everyone can be happy. It may just be a fantasy but I hope that one day we can all live happily with each other, while providing for our love ones , and just living everyday life. I don't mean that hippie flower power crap but nirvana, internal peace.
