How many people have gotten older and forgotten about the things they hoped for and dreamed about when they were young? Or given up without ever taking a chance, or settled in life because it’s easier, or they’re scared, or whatever other excuses? How many people need a reminder of who they once were?

I attribute my success to this: I never gave or took an excuse.
Never ruin an apology with an excuse.
You never knew what you could get away with until you tried.
—Karen Marie Moning in Darkfever
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
