“The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't.” I paused. “There was nothing I wouldn’t do to get here. Nothing that would stop me.” -- Freedom Road
"Love can easily slide into something you no longer recognize if you’re not careful." -- Waiting On Hope
"By contrast the ones you loved could easily turn their back on you. And when they did, it tore a part of you to shreds that you could never heal again. In the blink of an eye, you could be left with nothing" -- Freedom Road
"Then one day, I think you look up, and, yes, time has moved on, but so have you. And you realize that you’re happy again, that you’ve found a way to live your life. Maybe it won’t be exactly like before, but it is still good somehow, just different." -- Waiting On Hope
