what kind of world do you want?

Believe it if you need it, if you don’t just pass it on.

—Grateful Dead

But more about me. I moved to Chicago in the early 1990s and I studied improvisation there. I learned some rules that I try to apply in my life everyday: Listen, say yes, live in the moment, make sure you play with people who have your back, make big choices early and often.

—Amy Poehler, Harvard Commencement 2011

All I can tell you today is what I have learned. What I have discovered as a person in this world. And that is this: you can’t do it alone. As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people’s ideas are often better than your own.
Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.

—Amy Poehler, Harvard Commencement 2011

Although the tempest round me roars,
I hear the truth it liveth.
Although the darkness round me roars,
songs in the night it giveth.

The stories we love best do live in us forever, so whether you come back by page or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.

Always remember there was nothing worth sharing like the love that let us share our name.

May you never go to hell, but always be on your way.

It’s a beautiful day and I can’t stop myself from smiling
If I’m drinking, then I’m buying
And I know there’s no denying
It’s a beautiful day, the sun is up, the music’s playing
And even if it started raining
You won’t hear this boy complaining
It’s a beautiful day

Today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday, and all is well.
