“Often the very fact that you are worrying about something means that it isn’t likely to happen.”

“I don’t want everyone to like me; I should think less of myself if some people did.”

“Character — the willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life — is the source from which self-respect springs.”

“Cherish those who seek the truth, but beware of those who find it.”

“Sympathy is easy because it comes from a position of power. Empathy is getting down on your knees and looking someone else in the eye and realizing you could be them, and that all that separates you is luck.”
