“She’s tough, she’s confident. It’s funny, our beauty standard has become harder and tougher because we live in a tough age. I don’t think anyone wants to walk down the street and feel vulnerable. You want to walk down the street and feel like you’re in control.” —- Tom Ford

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven; A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance." Ecclesiastes 3:1,2,4 
Springtime.  Time to plant.

"Loyalty cannot be blueprinted. It cannot be produced on an assembly line. In fact, it cannot be manufactured at all, for its origin is the human heart-the center of self-respect and human dignity. It is a force which leaps into being only when conditions are exactly right for it-and it is a force very sensitive to betrayal."— Maurice R. Franks

I think people need to be educated to the fact that marijuana is not a drug. Marijuana is an herb and a flower. God put it here. If He put it here and He wants it to grow, what gives the government the right to say that God is wrong? ~Willie Nelson

"Top of the pops for me used to be The Diary of Anne Frank.  When I was a teenager, I used to really want to be Anne Frank.  Not the ending obviously, just the idea of living very simply in an attic, reading boks, keeping my diary, falling in love with the pale, sensitive Jewish boy in the attic next door.  That sounds a little bit perverse, doesn’t it?"  ~Alice, from the book
Brings back a lot of memories when I was growing up in the 80s….trying to fit in, wanting to be in the “in crowd”, problems with acne, teenage love, and more.
