“For what it’s worth … it’s never too late,
or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be.
There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want.
You can change or stay the same.
There are no rules to this thing.
We can make the best or the worst of it.
I hope you make the best of it.
I hope you see things that startle you.
I hope you feel things you never felt before.
I hope you meet people who have a different point of view.

the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive;
the rational world is my friend,
because I am a friend of its happiness:
When these things can be said,
then may the country boast
of its constitution and its government.”
~ Thomas Paine
If you win
you will be happy.
If you lose,
you will be wise.”

and leave the world
a better place than you found it.”
