  • Let go of the people who dull your shine, poison your spirit and bring you drama. Cancel your subscription to their issue - Steve Maraboli (Simplereminders.com)
  • It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change - Charles Darwin
