"People aren’t born good or bad. Maybe they’re born with tendencies either way, but its the way you live your life that matters."
Cassandra Clare, City of Glass
"Do not shorten the morning by getting up late, or waste it in unworthy occupations or in talk; look upon it as the quintessence of life, as to a certain extent sacred. Evening is like old age: we are languid, talkative, silly. Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death."
Arthur Schopenhauer, Counsels and Maxims
