If you risk nothing, you gain nothing.
Our character is basically a composite of our habits.

Stephen Covey
Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to
drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid
of not coming back. Say no when you don't want to do
something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if
everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be
liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you're doing here. Believe in kissing.
