It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.

(Gabriel Garcia Marquez)

We have to be able to to grow up. Our wrinkles are our medals to the passage of life. They are what we have been through and who we want to be.

—Lauren Hutton

You learn to count the quiet winds
An hour with no unprompted tears
And not to count the deadly days
As they fade into years
You learn to stand alone at last
So brave and bold and strong and stout
You learn somehow to like the dark
And even love the doubt
You learn to hold your life inside you
And never let it out
You learn to live and live and die and live
You learn to live without
You learn to live without

—If/Then
