It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the best of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.
I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.
When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.
I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.
