  14. I fear waking up one morning and finding out my life was all for nothing. We’re here for a reason. I believe a bit of the reason is to throw little torches out to lead people through the dark.

  15. When I was a kid they didn’t call it dyslexia. They called it you know, you were slow, or you were retarded, or whatever.

If you read to me, I could tell you everything that you read. They didn’t know what it was. They knew I wasn’t lazy, but what was it? ~Whoopi Goldberg
