Opportunities are like sunrises: if you wait too long, you miss them.

Hope begins in the dark: the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work. You don’t give up.

I learned not to trust people; I learned not to believe what they say but to watch what they do; I learned to suspect that anyone and everyone is capable of ‘living a lie’. I came to believe that other people – even when you think you know them well – are ultimately unknowable.

Nobody likes being alone that much. I don’t go out of my way to make friends, that’s all. It just leads to disappointment.

You can’t force someone to respect you, but you can choose not to be disrespected.

Angry is just sad’s bodyguard.

A person who doesn’t appreciate you doesn’t deserve you.

Winners are not people who never fail. Winners are people who never quit.

Be kind. Even on your bad days.

Your peace is more important than driving yourself crazy trying to understand why something happened the way it did. Let it go.
