(So if you're) too school for cool
Don't compromise yourself for the sake of temporal admiration.
Don't sweat the little things
I'm not concerned that you have fallen. I am concerned that you arise
Pride goeth before a fall.
Sometimes it's best to put pride in your back pocket.
There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
A kind and compassionate act is often it's own reward.
--William John Bennett
A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you're looking down, you can't see something that's above you.
Adversity doesn't build character, it reveals it.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
Be who you are and say what you think because the people who mind don't matter and the people who matter don't mind.
Critique is like medicine, you gotta take it to get better.
Don't tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly, don't tell them where they know the fish.
Every man's work, whether it be literature or music or pictures or architecture or anything else, is always a portrait of himself.
- Samuel Butler (1835-1902) British writer
Everybody loves a hero. People line up for them, cheer them, scream their names. And, years later tell how they stood for hours in the cold rain just to catch a glimpse of the one who taught them to hold on a second longer. I believe there's a hero in all of us who keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble, and finally allows us to die with pride, even though sometimes we have to be steady, and give up the thing we want the most. Even our dreams.
Good, better, best; never let it rest till your good is better and your better is best!

If I were a flower.. I would be a sunflower.
To always follow the sun, Turn my back to darkness,
Stand proud, tall and straight even with my head full of seeds.

Insist on yourself; never imitate.
It ain't bragging if you can do it.
It is not the walls that make the city, but the people who live within them. The walls of London may be battered, but the spirit of the Londoner stands resolute and undismayed.
It is not who is right, but what is right, that is of importance.
it's not always right to stay in pain when you know you already had too much...and it isn't always wrong to be happy when you know it's about time that you deserve to be
Marriage consists of learning how to handle living with the person that you absolutely cannot handle living without.
Mata de platano, a ti,
a ti te debo la mancha
que ni el jabon, ni la plancha
quitan de encima de mi.
Desque jibaro naci
al aire llevo el tesoro
de tu racimo de oro
y tu hoja verde y ancha;
Llevare siempre la mancha
per secula seculorum.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
Nothing is more then this day
Show me a someone not full of herself and I'll show you a hungry person.
Those who volunteer don't get paid because they are worthless, it's because they're priceless.
