You don’t have to be defined or confined by your environment, by your family circumstances, and certainly not by your race or gender.
I’ve noticed when I fear something, if I just end up doing it, I’m grateful in the end.
Our lives are stories in which we write, direct and star in the leading role. Some chapters are happy while others bring lessons to learn, but we always have the power to be the heroes of our own adventures.
Nobody built like you, you design yourself.
Happiness is a state of mind, you know. One is happy about certain things and not so happy about others.
First say to yourself what you would be, then do what you have to do.
No man can succeed in a line of endeavor which he does not like.
If you don’t like where you are, move. You are not a tree.
In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.
Sir Francis Bacon
By interpreting freedom as the propagation and immediate gratification of needs, people distort their own nature, for the engender in themselves a multitude of pointless and foolish desires, habits, and incongruous stratagems. Their lives are motivated only by mutual envy, sensuality, and ostentation.
