  2. Hey Drew!

    They are really good quotes to live by but I think the first one is not referenced well. It should actually be “Prophet Mohammad (pbuh).
    It’s just a small note, don’t take it personal please!

    1. Thanks! I love your blog!

      How did you get the widget on the side that says “I’ve frolicked thru” with all the country flags? I want to add that to my blog too!

  3. “For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

  4. “A man of ordinary talent will always be ordinary, whether he travels or not; but a man of superior talent will go to pieces if he remains forever in the same place” – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
