A poem I copied into my journal 8 years ago this week which still seems appropriate now (or appropriate again?).

Dive for dreams
or a slogan may topple you
(trees are their roots
and wind is wind)

trust your heart
if the seas catch fire
(and live by love
though the stars walk backward)

honour the past
but welcome the future
(and dance your death
away at this wedding)

never mind a world
with its villains or heroes
(for god likes girls
and tomorrow and the earth)

-e e cummings

my specialty is living said
a man (who could not earn his bread
because he would not sell his head)
