On our very first day at Harvard, a very wise Professor quoted Aristotle: “The law is reason free from passion.” Well, no offense to Aristotle, but in my three years at Harvard I have come to find that passion is a key ingredient to the study and practice of law – and of life. It is with passion, courage of conviction, and strong sense of self that we take our next steps into the world, remembering that first impressions are not always correct. You must always have faith in people. And most importantly, you must always have faith in yourself.

you know, i dont think there is anything i love more than that songs that come before the intermission. the song that ends act one. i mean final songs are good too but i just always love the song that ends act one. there’s just something about the melodies and the emotion that just builds to that end note and leaves you so eager for the next act. i mean think about it. non-stop, so much better, man up, one day more, and so many more.
