"There are always people who think they have you all figured out. Treasure them. They are your advantage in life."
"What you must never submit to is the assumption by others that you cannot become anything you haven't already become."
"You are more apt to be the person you pretend to be than the person you think is doing the pretending."
"Always do what you would do if it were someone else's problem and you had been called in to rescue the situation."
"You can't just wish away the people in your life and start over again. But sometimes you can all start over again."
...and a thousand more in my book Round Up The Usual Subjects. Please do take a look.
