Have the courage to live a life true to yourself, not the life others expect of you.

Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.

“You’d worry less about what people think about you if you knew how seldom they do.” David Foster Wallace

If you blame it on someone else, don’t expect it to get better.

If you treat a woman like a queen, and she treats you like a jester, your princess is in another castle.

Whenever something happens that makes you sad, ask yourself whether you’d still care about it when you’re ninety.

Be persistent. When knowledge and ability aren’t enough, be persistent.

“Life is scary. Get used to it. There are no magical fixes. It’s all up to you. So get up off your keister, get out of here, and go start doin’ the work. Nothing in this world that’s worth having comes easy.” Bob Kelso
