“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”

Forgiveness

“It took me a long time to understand what it means to forgive someone. I always wondered how I could forgive someone who chose to hurt me. But after a lot of soul-searching, I realized that forgiveness is not about accepting or excusing their behavior … it’s about letting it go and preventing their behavior from destroying my heart.”

. . . is the sweetest form of love. So when I say I’ll be your friend ’til the end, it’s as good as saying I’ll keep you in my heart ’til its very last beat.”

“At the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”
