"The idea that achieving success in one area of your life will remove all of your problems is a delusion that most people have. I fortunately have seen both sides of the coin. I was a struggling actor in Los Angeles for many years and now as a successful actor, I have become very grateful for what I have." — Adrien Brody
Mother Teresa (1910-1997) She ministered to those who no one else was willing to reach out to. The Lepers, the destitute, the babies that had been aborted late in pregnancy. She depended on God and listened to him. She stood up for her faith, and went out from the convent. She followed God until the day she died. I want to be this kind of woman.

“A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and in all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt
