No I just mean….being complicated isn’t a negative thing…everyone is complicated…and going through life experiences or “complications” is what builds character.
If by Rudyard Kipling
“The only real failure is the failure to try. And the measure of success is how we cope with disappointment. As we always must. We came here and we tried, all of us in our different ways. Can we be blamed for feeling that we are too old to change? Too scared of disappointment to start it all again? We get up in the morning, we do our best. Nothing else matters. But it’s also true that the person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing. All we know about the future is that it will be different. But perhaps what we fear is that it will be the same. So we must celebrate the changes. Because as someone once said, everything will be alright in the end, and if it’s not alright, then trust me, it’s not yet the end.” - Evelyn Greenslade // The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
“We have to create; it is the only thing louder than destruction.” - Andrea Gibson

We’ve been hit. Hit hard. How hard, we don’t yet know. The loss of life… is greater than any of us can possibly bear. In 1940, when London was being bombed - every night, night after night - Londoners scrawled a message on the rubble the next morning: ‘We can take it,’ they wrote. Well, New Yorkers are made of the same tough stuff…The city is still here. It will be here tomorrow morning. It’s going to be here forever. - Mayor Rudolph Giuliani

“I’d tell my younger self: worrying that you are crap is a waste of time. Worrying that you can’t do it is a waste of time. Worrying that you failed is a waste of time. No one cares. Just get on with it. I’d tell him to celebrate being different.” - Peter Capaldi
