- Marilyn Monroe

I believe that everything happens for a reason.

But just remember, some come, some go.
The ones that stay with you through everything -
they're your true best friends.
Don't let go of them.
Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world.
- Marilyn Monroe

Fame will go by and, so long, I've had you,
fame.
If it goes by, I've always known it was fickle.

but that's not where I live.
- Marilyn Monroe

one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.

day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
