Marcus Tullius Cicero
Forgiveness is the giving, and so the receiving, of life.
I gave up coffee. It's almost worse than giving up a lover.
When I decided to be a musician I reckoned that that was going to be the way of less profit, less money. I was sort of giving up the idea of making a lot of money. It was what I loved to do.

Saint Teresa of Avila
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
