It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.
To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.
You are essentially who you create yourself to be and all that occurs in your life is the result of your own making.
Don’t chase people. Be yourself, do your own thing and work hard. The right people – the ones who really belong in your life – will come to your. And stay.
Some people like you, some people don’t. In the end you just have to be yourself.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma.
Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you whish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity.
Have something to say, and say it as clearly as you can. That is the only secret of style.
Strength does not come from what yo can do. It comes from overcoming the things you thought you could not do.
I realize I have frailties and weaknesses, perhaps, even in a larger degree than most of my fellow men, but I cannot be anything but myself. If I attempted to do so, I know in advance I would make a complete failure of it.
