I don't have much to say, but others do so have some nice quotes:
"Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground" -Teddy Roosevelt
"If one dream should fall apart and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again" -Flavia Weedn
"Everything that exists is born for no reason, carries on living through weakness, and dies by accident" -John-Paul Sartre
"There is no great genius without a touch of madness" -Aristotle
"Write drunk; edit sober." -Ernest Hemingway

When life gives you lemons
Keep them
Life doesn't often provide us with gifts
To nurture our empty souls
So even sour fruit
Might satisfy our needs
If only for a little bit

    Whoa. This is something different than most responses so far. You portray lemons in more of a bittersweet light here, not exactly good, but not bad either. This is beautiful. I love it, and thanks for contributing to the prompt!
