“It is finally when you let go of what people expect you to be and people’s perceptions of you that you’re able to be the version of yourself that you’re supposed to be - like in God’s eyes. It doesn’t matter if you’re half crazy, or eccentric, or whatever it is - that you have to be true to who you were born to be.”—Gwyneth Paltrow
“TO DESTROY IS TO CREATE.
ALL CREATORS ARE DESTROYERS.
THE PASSION FOR DESTRUCTION IS A CREATIVE PASSION
BECAUSE THE OLD MUST DIE FOR THE NEW TO BE BORN -
BUILD THE PALACE OF THE FUTURE WITH THE RUBBLE OF THE PAST.
WRITE YOUR OWN LINES -
MAKE YOUR OWN PATH -
HABIT MAKES YOU NUMB.
DO SOMETHING NEW -
TO BE BORN AGAIN, FIRST YOU HAVE TO DIE.
DON’T WAIT FOR THE FUTURE: CREATE IT.”—#WEARETHEDESTROYERS
“Can’t whip this / So tripless / So ridiculous
Black and yellow like Wiz Khalifa
I’m stepping on my people
Shout out to my homeboys / With no Reefer
See I don’t do drugs / But I’m drugged out crazy
The flow is like that baby
You can talk a lot of that but still don’t amaze me”—Lupe Fiasco
“Self-acceptance comes from meeting life’s challenges vigorously. Don’t numb yourself to your trials and difficulties, nor build mental walls to exclude pain from your life. You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously. You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.”—J. Donald Walters
