But I think our childhood is more decisive than people generally are willing to admit. And what happens to us later can either cast a shadow or shine a light on what’s already been created — or ruined — within us.

— Ingmar Bergman, from an interview 


Meg Cabot - quote

-Only a fool is never afraid, Frank. Heroes are the people who carry on despite their fear, because they know the job’s got to get done

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.

Beyond is where a ballerina breathes. She goes beyond prettiness and perfection to make a language of ballet- not a language of words but of visions. When she is onstage you see more because she shows more- concentration, transformation, illumination, connection.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Of the minors Gerontology, Spanish, Management, or Leadership Studies, which would you recommend?
dancingnurse-ed dancingnurse-ed Said:

Thank you for the question - I apologize, as I don’t really think I have enough knowledge, or experience, to recommend what would work best for you. I do think it depends on what your goals are, what your major will be, and certainly what honestly interests you personally as well as professionally, not what recruiters/people would be impressed by. If you are currently in college, perhaps make an appt. to speak with an advisor in each of these fields - or if you’re a high school student, a college advisor - they would certainly be better equipped to assist you much better than I would be able to.

Sorry again, I hope someone with more experience, like a Professor or Advisor in these specialized areas will be able to adequately guide you,

Have a good day,
