If life is a movie and everyone is their own lead character, then we're also lesser characters in other 'movies.' And since you never know whose movie will be a hit, you may as well milk your lines.
The ax forgets; the tree remembers.
The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.
The one with the gold makes the rules.
Don’t fight forces, use them.
On matters of style, swim with the current. On matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Courage is not the lack of fear, it is acting in spite of it.
It’s better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
No one makes you feel inferior without your consent.
Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity.
