“There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?”
― Erin Hanson


“Who says paper worlds
Are an escape from what is real?
As though the lives trapped in their binding
Are not ones that make you feel.
For sometimes our greatest lessons
Come from those with ink for skin,
Who reach beyond the page
To take our hand and pull us in.”
― Erin Hanson

On Fighting–and Losing


Chin up, put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don’t lick your wounds. Celebrate them. The wounds you bear are the signs of a competitor. This is a lion fight. Just because you didn’t win, doesn’t mean you don’t know how to roar.

~ Grey’s Anatomy


We win some, we lose some. But we don’t have a chance at all if we don’t fight.
