Absolutely! And don't fret about what you don't have, what you aren't, and where you used to be or wish you were.

Extra points if someone knows this without looking it up...Unless this was posted already... :|

Or something like that - that was off of memory too, so that might not be word-for-word.

Balec can erase the memories of others. He has the powers and talents of a gorilla, but only for five minutes at a time. Balec is protected by an adamantium-like hide and can transform any sloth into air, and can transform kevlar into ice. Balec has been known to absorb the damage from energy-based attacks and redirect it against any combatant in sight. He can tunnel through solid plastic, but doing so drains his endurance for one hour. Balec is able to view distant locations with his mind.
He can force creatures to freeze in place and can become tiny. Sadly, Balec becomes ugly in the presence of silver, and struggles with being unable to smell.

Here's some Ann Voskamp quotes I came across this week. :D

Quote:
Get a life — and the only way to really get a life — is by giving away the one you have.


Quote:
You’ve never lost if you’ve learned. You’ve never failed if you’ve let your feet find the floor again come morning.


Quote:
Sometimes God will calm the storm for you, but sometimes God will calm you for the storm.
Sometimes God calms the storms — and sometimes the storm stills swirl and He calms our fears.

Must they be quote from real life people, or can they be ones from your stories?


Anyway,

Quote:
I onward go, I stop,
With hinged knees and steady hand to dress wounds,
I am firm with each, the pangs are sharp yet unavoidable,
One turns to me his appealing eyes—poor boy! I never knew you,
Yet I think I could not refuse this moment to die for you, if that would save you.


~Walt Whitman - The Wound Dresser

One I saw on Tumblr that was encouraging to me:

"Sometimes God has to break us to make us. It's just a bend; it's not the end. We're all like glow sticks; no matter how much we're bent and broken, our light still shines."
