Freedom lies in being bold.
Robert Frost

Be bold, be brave enough to be your true self.
Queen Latifah

If you knew that your life was merely a phase or short, short segment of your entire existence, how would you live? Knowing nothing 'real' was at risk, what would you do? You'd live a gigantic, bold, fun, dazzling life. You know you would. That's what the ghosts want us to do - all the exciting things they no longer can.
Chuck Palahniuk
