"When people talk about you & Judge you as if they know u, don’t stress about it, just remember that only dogs bark at people they don't know."----------
"Never regret something that made you smile. because at the time, it was exactly everything you wanted."---------
"You can't lose what you never had, you can't keep what's not yours, and you can't hold onto something that doesn't want to stay"----------
"It's said you get what you give. Truth is, you give it your all and sometimes you get nothing back. That is life and another lesson learned."----------
"Haters are like crickets. Crickets make a lot of noise, you hear it but you can't see them. Then right when you walk by them, they're quiet."----------
"I beg young people to travel. If you don’t have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown, eat interesting food, dig some interesting people, have an adventure, be careful. Come back and you’re going to see your country differently, you’re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You’re going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. It’s not what Tom Friedman writes about, I’m sorry. You’re going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking twelve miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you can’t get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people — Americans and Europeans — come back and go, “Ohhhh.” And the lightbulb goes on."
