Every problem has a gift for you in its hands.
If you are not confused, you are just not thinking clearly.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that. I believe in what I do, and I'll say it.
When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.
Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right.
Don't let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.
Speak what you think today in words as hard as cannon-balls; and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.
Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.
You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.
