How I Met Your Mother
"She said she usually cried at least once each day not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful & life was so short."
― Brian Andreas

"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has strength, power and magic in it." -Goerthe
"When the day shall come that we do part," he said softly, and turned to look at me, "if my last words are not 'I love you'-ye'll ken it was because I didna have time.”
― Diana Gabaldon
"I want God to play in my bloodstream the way sunlight amuses itself on the water." ~Elizabeth Gilbert
That's me in a nutshell.
"Help, I'm in a nutshell!!" - Austin Powers
