Notable Quotes

“Welcome to the best worst experience of your life.”

“Something deep deep inside me, in that place where there was still a little bit of light left, said there has to be another way.”

“This is where you begin…. It’s a powerful place to be, so when the situation is tugging at you from both directions, the dark side and the light side, do your best to always look at it from the light side, and look for the power, and look for that next person, next conversation, next step, always look for that.”
