Everyone has a handful of favorite quotes from history, movies, other people both fictional and non-fictional, books… You get the picture. Here is where I’ll post mine as I remember to post them.
I want to bust the world wide open the way you do when you’re filled with youth. I want to engage with people and lovers and fellow cops. I want to be physical and I also want to ask the big questions. I want to taste the taste and fix the problems. I want to run head long into chaos and bad guys and darkness and pranks and fun and laugh, laugh, laugh. I want to be the best friend and I want to be the greatest Aunt and the most complicated daughter. I want to be the mystery in the room. I want to be known. Embrace your grace. -Grace Hanadarko, Saving Grace

- Watch your thoughts,
For they become words.
Watch your words,
For they become actions.
Watch your actions,
For they become habits.
Watch your habits,
For they become character.
Watch your character,
For it becomes your destiny.
