George Bernard Shaw
Friendship is always a sweet responsibility, never an opportunity.

In 1985, I was living with my sister in Virginia, and since I was still in high school, I worked at McDonald's to save money to get an abortion.

Pope Benedict XVI
Our livelihood is intimately tied to the food we eat, water we drink and places where we recreate. That's why we have to promote responsibility and conservation when it comes to our natural resources.
What is a fear of living? It's being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness.

A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.

My daughter is the biggest gift; I've said it so many times and it sounds like a cliche, but the thing about being a parent is when you think you've cracked it, and you're on top of your game, they change again and you have to catch up and adjust.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
