"I also want to live the most vividly decorated temporary life that I can. I don’t just mean physically; I mean emotionally, spiritually, intellectually. I don’t want to be afraid of bright colors, or new sounds, or big love, or risky decisions, or strange experiences, or weird endeavors, or sudden changes, or even failure. I am going to spend as much time as I can creating delightful things out of my existence, because that’s what brings me awake and that’s what brings me alive." - Elizabeth Gilbert
