My philosophy statement: Life is made up by personal choices. Learn by experience to make the most out of the rest of your days. No one can control their life entirely but by learning from the past one can make decisions in the present to help create a better future. Life is a journey which we all take; no one can determine where the path will lead, but only you should be the one to determine where yours ends up. Life should be lived in accordance to YOUR own beliefs and opinions. No one is perfect, accept each personal fault as they come. So live life to the fullest, after all everyone is going to die eventually.

The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man.
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.


The purpose of life is to gain knowledge,
to make the world a better place.
Constraint will never make you a truer man
So let go of perfectionism in all its tyranny-
know success can come from a failure.

We feel it creeping upon us,
the wild influences of our own fantastic superstitions.
We are obsessed with fighting error.
We're not perfect!
All have sinned.

Why can't we see?

Success can come from a failure.
So have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.

Life is short.
Enjoy every minute you can
so that hours are not wasted
Efface the footprints in the sands
and don't dwell in the past.

What shall we do
with our
stolen time?
We may as well speak what we think now in hard words,
and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again.

Time is fleeting.external image 3437353868_6fa627c343.jpg
Let us, then, be up and doing
Still achieving, still pursuing
If there are no limitations,
what could be done?

Go on now!

Life is God's most precious gift
So many other people just go through the motions

-in life-
without any heart or emotion.
See your dreams-
out of reach but always in your eye line.
May all your dreaming fill the empty sky.external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSSQyWrxJtk1W9pjZepnzQPz7l7q73HLeswZIh3x6V-TbV_ZEbG

But hold these truths to be self-evident
for nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.
So follow your own path from here

For in this modern day and age we have
instant disbelief
That's the reason we will never become anything- because we will never believe in ourselves
because we will always listen to the
mass majority.
Society is in a conspiracy against the manhood of every one of its members.

But let none be your judge,

imitation is suicide.
You must take yourself for better, external image images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ3dg5KXQwkSvKkPr1-co6Y6s3GpGSDSG73l1eBvnVxzRkkJyafJ5XAiZIyfA
for worse.

Believe in yourself.
Want to be a lion
When everybody wants to pass as cats.

If everybody's making fun of you and criticizing you,
then you know you're on the right track for
to be great is to be misunderstood.
So don't listen
to what they say.
Don't put your life in their hands
and throw it all away.
