“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald  Eric Roth

{Note: I did some research because I had received a number of questions about this quote. Apparently it has been attributed numerous times to Fitzgerald but it was actually from the screenplay to his short story, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and should be properly attributed to the author of the screenplay, Eric Roth. Researched by an astute librarian.}
