  • Make others feel seen, heard, and valued.

In Life…

  • People change

  • Love hurts

  • Friends leave

  • Things go wrong

  • Just remember that life goes on...

  • Characterize people by their actions, and their words will never fool you.

  • Speak only when you feel that your words are better than your silence.

  • It's okay if you don't like me. Not everyone has good taste.

  • Kill them with success and bury them with a smile.

  • When everything is important, we can't separate what matters from what doesn't.

  • If knowledge is information, wisdom is acting upon that knowledge.
