1. The smartest people take things they've learned in the past and applies them to present-day problems.
2. It isn't about doing something the fastest, but it doesn't mean you have to be slow either. Drum to your own beat--the beat that you like.
3. You're strong if you can learn to live life by yourself. But you're even stronger if you have the courage to go ahead and ask for some help once in a while.
4. The greatest people, the winners, have had their share of losses.
"I'll tell you what the end of the world will be like.
It will be a final moment, both terrible and heartbreaking. Absolute chaos. People running as fast as they ever have, cars filling every road and freeway, phone lines backed up trying to process millions of calls, fingers flying over keyboards, thumbs texting like rapid fire, long lines of people trying to cram themselves into subways and airplanes. All of them trying to tell someone else,
"I love you."
It's not the end of the world yet, but don't wait until then to tell them. The worst thing isn't the end of the world. It's what you didn't finish--what you didn't say when you had the chance."
6. Sometimes your gut instinct isn't enough. Sometimes you're gonna have to go the source and ask for the truth.
7. Love is the most beautiful thing you'll ever encounter. Other times, it's the most horrid.
8. There are two kinds of regret, and one is worse than the other. One leaves you saying, "I can't believe I did that." The worse kind is the one that makes you say, "I can't believe I didn't do that."
9. This may be a shocker to you, but not everyone likes you.
10. Life can be hard and tough and difficult and confusing, but it can also be beautiful and fun and happy and uplifting. You decide what you want life to be.
