“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
- Steve Jobs

“Say it once, tell me twice
Are you certain I’m alright?
Just a sign, to remind me
Tomorrow’s worth the fight
Ever changing the storyline that keeps me alive
So make a wish, and say
Give me life, give me love
Scarlet angel from above
Not so low, not so high
Keep it perfectly disguised
Every changing the storyline that keeps me alive” – “Miracle” by Shinedown
