  • "Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren't any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn't be here in the first place.

  • "The world bursts at the seams with people ready to tell you you're not good enough. On occasion, some may be correct. But do not do their work for them.
