"Because I don't live in either my past or my future. I'm interested only in the present. If you can concentrate always on the present, you'll be a happy man.

Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we're living right now."

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn't original sin. He's born with the tragedy that he has to grow up.

A lot of people don't have the courage to do it.
-- Helen Hayes
