Bob Marley - "If she's amazing she won't be easy. If she's easy, she won't be amazing. If she's worth it, you won't give up. If you give up, you're not worthy . Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.
"This is your life" manifesto. Do what you love. Yes, do what you love. One of the worst things in life is to regret not pursuing your passion; especially when you don't pursue your passions because someone belittles your dreams.
