Janis Joplin

Many who seem to be struggling with adversity are happy; many, amid great affluence, are utterly miserable.

My theory on life is that life is beautiful. Life doesn't change. You have a day, and a night, and a month, and a year. We people change - we can be miserable or we can be happy. It's what you make of your life.
