Don’t you dare
For someone else’s comfort -
Do not become small
For people who refuse to grow.
m.v., Advice to my future daughter, #2. (via saicoquilerr)
"It’s just a serene and tranquil place to just relax and enjoy yourself and leave your troubled mind and things that iritate you in your heart, behind. Once you enter the gates, you’re just in a very wonderful, quiet, loving place. There’s lakes, rolling hills and grass and trees and rides and trains and a movie theatre. It’s 3,000 acres.
I get to compensate for the loss in my childhood that I never got to enjoy childlike things, but it’s for everybody and we have handicapped, kids with cancer, leukemia kids, Make A Wish Foundation, Dream Street…We’ve been doing this for, 9, 10, 11 years. I did it before at my Mother’s house in Encino. We never wave a flag, we never try to get press for it. I do it quietly. By the busloads they come. We don’t allow cameras or video. I do it quietly because real charity is from the heart, you know? Not to say, ‘look at me, look what I’m doing.’ I do it quietly. I do it from the heart. I’ve done this for many, many, many years.”
