everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege

the pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous notion, if you pursue happiness you'll never find it

a hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver for 5 minutes longer

This one’s for you, little man.
I will sing,
I will dance,
I will laugh,
I will smile,
I will cry,
I will pray,
For you.
This one’s for you, big guy.
If I could live one day
As strong and as brave
As you live your life,
I’d be content.
If my courage measured close to yours,
I’d be honored.
If I could fight
As hard as you fight,
I’d be a winner.
If I could ease this for you
I swear I would.
This one’s for you.
If I could measure the love we have
For you,
And the hope,
My tools would break.
If I could harness your light,
I could light the world forever.
If I could share this pain with you,
I swear I would.
This one’s for you, little buddy.
If we could tell your how much
Our hearts hurt for you-
I hope you know, little man,
We’re all here.
Now and always.
This one’s for you.
