"Don't live life to please others. Be who you are." "Even on your worst days, you need to smile because by doing only that you'll feel just a little bit better." "Be who you are. Everyone else is taken." "A person has three choices in life. You can swim against the tide and get exhausted, or you can tread water and let the tide sweep you away, or you can swim with the tide, and let it take you where it wants you to go."
