“Whatever you do in life will be insignificant but it is very important that you do it because you can’t know; you can’t ever really know the meaning of your life… and you don’t need to. Just know that your life has a meaning. Every life has a meaning, whether it lasts one hundred years or one hundred second. Every life and every death changes the world in its own way. Gandhi knew this. He knew his life would mean something to someone, somewhere, somehow. And he knew with as much certainty that he could never know that meaning. He understood that enjoying life should be of much greater concern then understanding it. And so do I. You can’t know. So don’t take it for granted, but don’t take it too seriously. Don’t postpone what you want. Don’t leave anything misunderstood. Make sure the people you care about know. Make sure they know how you really feel. Because just like that… IT COULD END.”

“I hope my head doesn’t get very big. I’m just going to keep my feet on the ground, stick to friends and family and try and lead a normal life.”

I hated school. I hated school, and I didn’t realize why. I thought I was - there was something wrong with me for hating school and not being able to deal with school. At the time, it was ingrained in me that school was - if you’re not successful at school, you’re not going to be successful at life. And the hierarchy with subjects at school, the arts are given no credence and if they are, it’s false credence. So yeah, I look back on it and I get angry. I am angry about it because you know, there might be a brilliant ballerina somewhere in school that’s being forced to do maths and she’s seen as “difficult”. But if she was just allowed to express whatever gifts she has to offer, then she would be happy and she could make hundreds of other people joyous for a couple of hours per night.

“At every photo shoot, they want to make me sexy, put on sh*tloads of makeup, make me look like a rock chick. It just felt like I was being pushed to be something I wasn’t: ‘Oh, look at Hermione, she’s all grown up now!’ But that’s just not me. I don’t get my flash out. I mean, I wear mini-dresses, but I try to do it tastefully. You don’t want to see too much. I hate seeing big, huge cleavage. My reaction is, Put it away! If it’s too much, it’s just vulgar. I think it’s so much sexier to be understated. It’s more intriguing to be sexy in a less obvious way.”

You can change or stay the same; there are no rules to life. We can make the best or worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that amaze you. I hope you feel things you have never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you are proud of. If you find that you are not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.
“Everybody has that point in their life where you hit a crossroads and you’ve had a bunch of bad days and there’s different ways you can deal with it and the way I dealt with it was I just turned completely to music.”
— Taylor Swift
“When I was a little girl I used to read fairy tales. In fairy tales you meet Prince Charming and he’s everything you ever wanted. In fairy tales the bad guy is very easy to spot. The bad guy is always wearing a black cape so you always know who he is. Then you grow up and you realize that Prince Charming is not as easy to find as you thought. You realize the bad guy is not wearing a black cape and he’s not easy to spot; he’s really funny, and he makes you laugh, and he has perfect hair.” - Taylor Swift
