    I can't see past yesterday yet I"ll walk right through tomorrow. There has to be a better way but I can tell by all my sorrow. Must write my mind running out of time, the only witness to it all. Pretend I'm fine, my mouth I bind all to fortify my wall.

    “Look at the stars. It won't fix the economy. It won't stop wars. It won't give you flat abs, or even help you figure out your relationship. But it's important. It helps you to remember that you and your problems are both infinitesimally small and conversely, that you are a piece of an amazing and vast universe.”

    “And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
