It's not about going around trying to stir up trouble. As long as you're honest and you articulate what you believe to be true, somebody somewhere will become your enemy whether you like it or not.

Good things come to those who are patient and still hope, even though they’ve been let down and disappointed, to those who still believe even though they’ve failed at something, to those who still love even though they’ve been hurt before.

Behind every beautiful life, there has been some kind of pain: You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn, these are the classic lessons of life. Nobody is perfect, but everyone is human. You’ve been hurt, but you’re alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the corner.
Smile at people who look like they are having a rough day, be kind to them, let them know that there is reason to be happy. Kindness is the only investment that never fails, and wherever there is a human being, there’s an opportunity for kindness.

Every once in while it’s exciting to be someone different. It’s a good escape from life.
Being held in high esteem by everyone around us isn't just a nice thing to feel; it's an affirmation that we exist and that all is well.
Education has little to do with intelligence and nothing to do with having class."
None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free.
To love yourself is the beginning of a lifelong affair.
The average man does not want to be free. He simply wants to be safe.
Kindness and hard work will take you further than intelligence.
Every so often, we need to put manners and good taste aside in favor of brutal honesty."
We can not embrace happines to stay, we can only enjoy it as it comes and be glad that for a moment it was ours.
