Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
The Paradoxical Commandments People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway. People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway. Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.
When someone loves you, the way they talk about you is different. You feel safe and comfortable.
I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won't tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn't change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn't really change the fact that you have what you have.
Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.
And that's the thing about people who mean everything they say. They think everyone else does too.
If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people.
It's discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.
Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.
Most men would rather deny a hard truth than face it.
Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
You can't lie to your soul.
To make your children capable of honesty is the beginning of education.
[H]iding how you really feel and trying to make everyone happy doesn't make you nice, it just makes you a liar.
Those sweet lips. My, oh my, I could kiss those lips all night long. Good things come to those who wait.
A fit, healthy body—that is the best fashion statement
I felt like an animal, and animals don’t know sin, do they?
This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.
V-Day…if you need this one day in a year to show everyone else you truly care for “your loved one” I think it’s quite stupid. I hate this commercialism. It’s all artificial, and has nothing to do with real love.
