The turning point was when I hit my 30th birthday. I thought, if really want to write, it’s time to start. I picked up the book How to Write a Novel in 90 Days. The author said to just write three pages a day, and I figured, I can do this. I never got past Page 3 of that book.
I spend hours playing chess because I find it so much fun. The day it stops being fun is the day I give up.

You can only hate someone whom you have the capacity to love, because if you are really indifferent, you cannot even get up the enough energy to hate him.

I am just a child who has never grown up. I still keep asking these ‘how’ and ‘why’ questions. Occasionally, I find an answer.
The longer I live, the more I feel that true repose consists in ‘renouncing’ one’s own self, by which I mean making up one’s mind to admit that there is no importance whatever in being ‘happy’ or ‘unhappy‘ in the usual meaning of the words.
Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.
So many times, people told me I can’t do this or can’t do that. My nature is that I don’t listen very well. I’m very determined, and I believe in myself. My parents brought me up that way. Thank God for that. I don’t let anything stand in my way.
The best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up.

If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us.
Now, as a nation, we don’t promise equal outcomes, but we were founded on the idea everybody should have an equal opportunity to succeed.

All human wisdom is summed up in two words; wait and hope.
The moment the alarm goes off is the first test; it sets the tone for the rest of the day.

One of the big questions in the climate change debate: Are humans any smarter than frogs in a pot? If you put a frog in a pot and slowly turn up the heat, it won’t jump out. Instead, it will enjoy the nice warm bath until it is cooked to death. We humans seem to be doing pretty much the same thing.
Love takes up where knowledge leaves off.
I’ll never, ever be full. I’ll always be hungry. Obviously, I’m not talking about food. Growing up, I had nothing for such a long time. Someone told me a long time ago, and I’ve never forgotten it, ‘Once you’ve ever been hungry, really, really hungry, then you’ll never, ever be full.’
Things go up and down. If you can survive the down, it will come back.
Your ups and downs in sports, I think they are as normal as daily life: One day you wake up and feel great, the next day you wake up and feel maybe less great.

‘Back To Love’ is a way of letting people know that sometimes you get caught up in trying to be successful in school or in your social life, and it’s a reminder not to forget that each day people are getting older.

People come in and out of our lives, and the true test of friendship is whether you can pick back up right where you left off the last time you saw each other.
You should never give up your inner self.

The only good political movement I’ve seen lately was Occupy Wall Street. They had no leaders, which was genius. But unfortunately it always ends up with some hippy playing a flute.

I was born into a Christian family and brought up in a Lutheran church.

At that point, as a teenager, I began to grasp the concept of Christ’s true love and forgiveness.
I didn’t want a pickup with mud tires. I wanted an old blazer with as many speakers in the back as I could afford. I would even steal them out of my brother’s car and pack them in there. I remember sitting in a parking lot and turning my radio up and walking down the street to see how far you could feel it.

Pair up in threes.
You just pick up a chord, go twang, and you’re got music.

Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They’re keeping up with their friends and family, but they’re also building an image and identity for themselves, which in a sense is their brand.

A career is wonderful, but you can’t curl up with it on a cold night.
Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.

It’s the friends you can call up at 4 a.m. that matter.

Men do not fail; they give up trying.

But for the most part, it’s all in your head. People care less about your actions than you think. Why? They have their own problems!
Even the knowledge of my own fallibility cannot keep me from making mistakes. Only when I fall do I get up again.
