It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.
Nobody can hurt me without my permission.
Instead of worrying about what people say of you, why not spend time trying to accomplish something they will admire
Whatever lifts the corners of your mouth, trust that.

If you want creative workers, give them enough time to play.
You'll never get ahead of anyone as long as you try to get even with him.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Freedom and independence form my character.
Accept whatever comes to you woven in the pattern of your destiny, for what could more aptly fit your needs?
