Nobody said that it'd be easy, they just promised it would be worth it." | “Life will hit you hard in the face, wait for you to get back up just so it can kick you in the stomach.

It makes me happy to see people acting as leaders and following their own morals rather than just “following the crowd.” Your true friends are the ones who love you for who you really are, even if you are a total weirdo.

My parents, sisters, and my Roanie pony mean more to me than anything money could ever buy.

Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'" - Alice in Wonderland | Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books, and one of my favorite movies as well. She’s just a littler girl who gets herself caught up in a big mess that she doesn’t know how to get out of. I find myself in similar situations All. The. Time. I love that the White Queen reminds Alice that nothing is impossible, and that she just has to get up and go for her dreams. I need that little inspiration sometimes, too. | Kyla Baldwin PC '11

Rather I wear tennis shoes, stilettos, or leather boots, I put them on with confidence and run the world, EVERYDAY! | Katie Brouillard PC '11

26: “Ain't no rhyme or reason, no complicated meaning, ain't no need to over think it-Let go laughing. Life don't go quite like you planned it. We try so hard to understand it, irrefutable, indisputable-The fact is it happens.” | Daniella Vetter PC '11 | This is pretty much my philosophy on life. I am probably going to get a tattoo with it sometime. I think life is too short not to enjoy it and too serious if you ccan't laugh at yourself.

Kennedy. | Abby Billings PC '11 | I like it because he was saying how being just the same as everyone else not only inhibits you it limits what you can do as well. The quote has always given me motivation to be different and to not do what everyone else is doing, just because they're doing it, and that diversity is the greatest thing we can have to come together as a whole.

Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” - T.E.
