“Give all of us gathered here tonight the strength to remember that life is so very fragile. We are all vulnerable, and we will all at some point in our lives… fall. We will all fall. We must care this in our hearts. That what we have is special. That it can be taken from us and that when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will now all be tested. It is these times; it is this pain that allows us to look inside ourselves”—Coach Taylor. Friday Night Lights.
“I hadn’t been paying much attention to things like the sunrise, but that old sun had been coming up anyway. It didn’t really care how I felt, it was going to rise and set regardless of whether I noticed it, and if I was going to enjoy it, that was up to me.”—Jeannette Walls (via withbutterflies)
