» Words to live by… or, in some cases, not

“Smile, my boy. It’s almost sunrise.”
– Robin Williams as Teddy Roosevelt in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

I’m done trying to fit in / And be half forgiven / For things that I never did / We’re more than what scares us / We’re final and fearless / We’ll dance where the ice gets thin
– Matt Nathanson, “Giants”
