Be yourself. I mean, who are you kidding. If you be yourself, you'll find you're PERFECT friend. You're PERFECT boyfriend. You're PERFECT girlfriend. You'll be happy, instead of trying to be someone you know you aren't. You'd be a shadow of a figure you don't even recognize. Chained in a lie. If you be yourself, you'd have confidence, and life would be SO MUCH EASIER! Be yourself, for the sake of others who want to be friends with you, but don't know who you are. If you're yourself, maybe we'll get rid of the snobby popular girls that force you to be someone else. Think about it. Be yourself.

We shall but we dont wish to make any one envious of the good time that is coming to us We look forward to a disreputable, vigorous, unhonoured, and disorderly old age.

Blaise Pascal used to mark with charcoal the walls of his playroom, seeking a means of making a circle perfectly round and a triangle whose sides and angle were all equal. He discovered these things for himself and then began to seek the relationship which existed between them. He did not know any mathematical terms and so he made up his own. Using these names he made axioms and finally developed perfect demonstrations, until he had come to the thirty-second proposition of Euclid.
