Embracing ambiguity makes life beautiful.
The future's gonna be okay, as long as you're you.
If you are a person who is smart, and you are a person who can roll with the punches, then the future doesn't hold anything that you can't handle.
The things that made you weird as a kid make you great today. But only if you put it in your work.
