Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
Don’t be afraid of hard work. Nothing worthwhile comes easy.
There is only one way to avoid criticism: Do nothing. Be nothing. Say nothing.
Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people.
So many things are possible just as long so you don’t know they’re possible.
Just because something works doesn’t mean it can’t be improved.
Do what you do so well that they will want to see it again and again and bring their friend.
As long as they are well-intentioned, mistakes are not a matter for shame, but for learning.
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.
