"You got it, kid; that wet jab, that high storm. Writing’s the hardest job there is, and you’re punching those keys like a champion. This game, this sport, you’re in it for the fight, don’t ever forget that. Words are formed through passion."

"Remember that thing you were going to do someday? Well, today's that someday, and I ain't gonna let you sit your ass back down on the couch just to catch reruns of 'Wheel of Fortune'. Go make your own opportunities instead of watching other people take yours,"

"We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. […]"

"We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude. Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies - all these are private and, except through symbols and at second hand, incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never the experiences themselves. From family to nation, every human group is a society of island universes. Most island universes are sufficiently like one another to Permit of inferential understanding or even of mutual empathy or "feeling into." Thus, remembering our own bereavements and humiliations, we can condole with others in analogous circumstances, can put ourselves (always, of course, in a slightly Pickwickian sense) in their places. But in certain cases communication between universes is incomplete or even nonexistent. The mind is its own place, and the Places inhabited by the insane and the exceptionally gifted are so different from the places where ordinary men and women live, that there is little or no common ground of memory to serve as a basis for understanding or fellow feeling. Words are uttered, but fail to enlighten. The things and events to which the symbols refer belong to mutually exclusive realms of experience."

"I am Me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine, because I alone chose it -- I own everything about me: my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions, whether they be to others or myself. I own my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes. Because I own all of me, I can become intimately acquainted with me. By so doing, I can love me and be friendly with all my parts. I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me, and other aspects that I do not know -- but as long as I am friendly and loving to myself, I can courageously and hopefully look for solutions to the puzzles and ways to find out more about me. However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought, and felt turn out to be unfitting, I can discard that which is unfitting, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I can see, hear, feel, think, say, and do. I have the tools to survive, to be close to others, to be productive, and to make sense and order out of the world of people and things outside of me. I own me, and therefore, I can engineer me. I am me, and I am Okay."

When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever. Leaving in its place whatever I have traded for it. I pledge to myself: That it shall be for gain, good, and success, In order that I shall not regret the price I paid for this day."

"The thing about spiritual life is that it continues to go on whether or not you pay attention to it or not. You return home to speak with mother, eat a meal, and then are out the door onto the next adventure."

"Those who give, receive. Those who take, are taken from. When you give something to someone, you also give it to yourself. What you're expressing to others you're also expressing towards yourself. The words you use about yourself creates the image you have of yourself. We are mirrors of each other. What you give, is reflected back to you; words, actions. We attract the situations we imagine. When you have negative thoughts about yourself, the people around you will reflect this back to you until you realise what you're doing, and change your focus. We lead the lives we think we deserve. We accept the amount of love we think we deserve, and the amount of pain. If you want something, you have to give it. You create the situation you want.

Schools don't teach this. School makes you a task-doer, and fails to make you realise that you need to bring something to the table and be unafraid to make mistakes. You are a creator..."
