“It’s a matter of perspective whether the future will be good or bad, but I think it will be bright as long as we fight for nothing but the truth, and to seek love and beauty.”

“We’re too focused on images now. Even if you don’t enjoy a party, you want to be seen in photos having fun with friends you’re not even close with.”
