"Life may not always be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance."
"Our finger prints don't fade from the lives we've touched"

It's more than the beat of a heart or the birth of a child
It’s love, laughter, and knowledge
It’s having someone to wake up to in the morning
Having a place to go
Or a a place to stay
It's knowing that with every person you meet
you effect his life in someway
Sometimes it's knowing what you don’t want
To help you find what you really need
Most importantly it's about following your heart
And being spontaneous
Because if you don’t do it
No one else will

The author's comments:
It's not about getting a brand new car or a new iPhone. It doesn't matter who you bring to prom or what you get on that math test. Society needs to strip itself of the materialism and start focusing on happiness and love.
