Only the educated are free.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
To be a good loser is to learn how to win.
I can, therefore I am.

I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people.
I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?
I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong.

He didn't come out of my belly, but my God, I've made his bones, because I've attended to every meal, and how he sleeps, and the fact that he swims like a fish because I took him to the ocean. I'm so proud of all those things. But he is my biggest pride.
And God help Bruce Springsteen when they decide he's no longer God... They'll turn on him, and I hope he survives it.
As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot.
