And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

Book Quote by Theodor Seuss Geisel from Oh, the Places You'll Go

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...

And remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act

And never mix up your right foot with your left.
