To be stupid, selfish, and have good health are three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, all is lost.

Peace is not the absence of war; it is a virtue; a state of mind; a disposition for benevolence; confidence; and justice.

you can use a disk partitioning tool like gparted, cfdisk, or fdisk to resize them and delete/move them. just make sure you know what you're doing before you try anything. it's easy to watch your data get erased.
The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.

And if you have any doubts, it's good practice to back up what you can't live without ;)
