"You have to find something that you love enough to be able to take risks, jump over the hurdles and break through the brick walls that are always going to be placed in front of you. If you don't have that kind of feeling for what it is you are doing, you'll stop at the first giant hurdle." "How people treat you defines them, how you respond defines you. What happened is what happened. What you choose to do from here will determine the future. In every moment, the choice is yours." "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else." "Settle down. Settle your heart. Settle in. Settle the issue. Be apart of a settlement if you must. But (in life) NEVER SETTLE"
