And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
— Abraham Lincoln
Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.
— African saying

— Carl Rogers
