“And then there is the most dangerous risk of all — the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.”

Roughly, “Don’t let the bastards get you down”
“You can’t get so hung up on where you’d rather be that you forget to make the most of where you are.”
from the movie “Passengers”
