Original, and Re-quoted, Phrases to Live By

Anyone who knows me knows that I have taken, and still take, chances. A lot of the times it's against the advise of some of my most trusted friends, and even my family. However, with each chance taken, whether it be successful or not, I learn. You have to learn things for yourself through experience. I am not the richest person in the world, but I have enough to eat, a roof over my head and clothes on my back. I am truly successful. The fact of the matter is, never choose you relatives or friends over your family because the only ones that will stay by your side are your spouse and your children, they are your family. So the meek shall inherit the earth... but I'm going to have some fun while I'm here...
