Just remember, Lauren, at twenty-five you are the cutting edge of the blade. That's good. But that is far from the whole deal.

Perfect never happens, and if one pushes too hard the whole thing goes over a cliff. That's why revolutions often bring on more problems than they fix.

Be patient but persistent in making things better.
