Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It's the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, 'This is me, and I'm interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.'
Ashton Kutcher

To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau
