Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.

There are always two choices. Two paths to take. One is easy. And its only reward is that it’s easy.

The future is completely open, and we are writing it moment to moment.

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.

If you’re going to doubt something, doubt your own limits.

If you are never scared, embarrassed, or hurt, it means you never take chances.

The truth you believe and cling to makes you unavailable to hear anything new.

The past has no power to stop you from being present now. Only your grievance about the past can do that.

A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.

Ideas can be life-changing. Sometimes all you need to open the door is just one more good idea.

Continuous effort—not strength or intelligence—is the key to unlocking our potential.

Strangers are friends you have yet to meet.

Invent your world. Surround yourself with people, color, sounds, and work that nourish you.

Some people think it’s holding on that makes one strong—sometimes it’s letting go.

We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.
