Anyone with gumption and a sharp mind will take the measure of two things: what’s said and what’s done.
Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do them. Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that - that’s what life is.
The Pale-headed Rosella - Platycercus adscitus, is a broard-tailed parrot of the genus Platycercus native to north-eastern Australia. Found in open woodland, it feeds on seeds and fruit. As with other rosellas, the Pale-headed Rosella nests in hollows of large trees.

I have had to experience so much stupidity, so many vices, so much error, so much nausea, disillusionment and sorrow, just in order to become a child again and begin anew. I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace.
