Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.

It is only by following your deepest instinct that you can lead a rich life, and if you let your fear of consequence prevent you from following your deepest instinct, then your life will be safe, expedient and thin.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

I cry out to God seeking only his decision
Gabriel standing and confirms
I've created my own prison
So I held my head up high hiding hate that burns inside
Which only fuels their selfish pride
We're all held captive out from the sun
A sun that shines on only some
We the meek are all in one
-- Creed, "My Own Prison"
