wcw – family is family

“There is no such thing as a “broken family.”  Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents.  Families are made in the heart.  The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut.  If you cut those ties, those people are not your family.  If you make those ties, those people are your family.  And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.”

wcw – that part which cannot fail

“When adults say, ‘Teenagers think they are invincible’ with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don’t know how right they are.  We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken.  We think that we are invincible because we are.  We cannot be born, and we cannot die.  Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations.  They forget that when they get old.  They get scared of losing and failing.  But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.”
– John Green
