"There will be times in your life when you have to choose between being loved and being respected. Always pick being respected. That love without respect was always fleeting - but that respect could grow into real, lasting love." Soooo so true
I really like this quote, but I don't think this would truly take just one day. You'll have to fight for much longer, survive for much longer, persevere for much longer. And the truth is some of us won't get there. The world is too unforgiving for that.
i still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. - John Burroughs (I'll add, and all the sleep I want to sleep :)
