Quote of the Day: Tyra Collette Edition

The best lines I've ever heard, in any TV show or movie or song, courtesy of my favorite show:

Two years ago, I was afraid of wanting anything.
I figured wanting would lead to trying, and trying would lead to failure.
But now I find I can’t stop wanting.
I want to fly somewhere in first class.
I want to travel to Europe on a business trip.
I want to get invited to the White House.
I want to learn about the world.
I want to surprise myself.
I want to be important.
I want to be the best person I can be.
I want to define myself, instead of having others define me.
I want to win and have people be happy for me.
I want to lose and get over it.
I want to not be afraid of the unknown.
I want to grow up to be generous and big-hearted, the way that people have been with me.
I want an interesting, surprising life.
It’s not that I think I’m going to get all these things.
I just want the possibility of getting them.

- Tyra Collette, FNL
