Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. it's about learning to dance in the rain.
Three solutions to every problem: accept it, change it, leave it. If you can't accept it, change it. If you can't change it, leave it.
Because the things you're scared of are usually the most worthwhile.
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.
