The imagination exercises a powerful influence over every act of sense, thought, reason,
-- over every idea.
Latin Proverb

I once believed that life was filled with sadness,
And then I saw flowers bloom.
I once believed that life was unavoidable pain,
And then I saw the charity of strangers.
I once believed that life was a confusing maze,
And then I saw people leading the way.
I once believed that life was nothing special,
And then I learned to live.

Love, like you can't get hurt
Dance, like no one's watching
Live, like there's no tomorrow
