The future lies before you, like paths of pure white snow. Be careful how you tread it, for every step will show.

Things in life have no real beginning, though our stories about them always do.
— Colum McCann (via amandaonwriting)
"We chose to do these things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. Because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills. Because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one that we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win." - JFK
I’ve noticed something about people who make a difference in the world: They hold the unshakable conviction that individuals are extremely important, that every life matters. They get excited over one smile. They are willing to feed one stomach, educate one mind, and treat one wound. They aren’t determined to revolutionize the world all at once; they’re satisfied with small changes. Over time, though, the small changes add up. Sometimes they even transform cities and nations, and yes, the world.
My only resolution, in poster form. I may have to get this.
