"If you are always trying to be normal, you'll never know how amazing you can be."
"Nothing can dim the light which shines from within."
"When people show you who they are, believe them the first time."
"You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not be reduced by them."
"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."
"Pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you."
