"Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start."
"Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive."
"The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique."
"I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities."
"I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death."
-Leonardo da Vinci
