Member Quotes About Assent

Quote Left Fique longe da pobreza de sonho, sonhe em usar roupas legais, maquiagem perfeita, viver em apartamentos aonde goste e sentar na mesa de um restaurante chic. Melhor, lute. Melhor ainda, lute por um assento na cabeceira da mesa e ao lado daquela pessoa que admira. Lute para ter mais horas de trabalho. Lute para ter lugar para argumentar e falar sobre seus sonhos. E lute para que todas as pessoas tenham habilidades e sabedoria para realizar todo seu potencial. Quote Right
