- No one can avoid defeat. That is why it is better to lose a few battles in the fight for your dreams than to be defeated without even knowing why you are fighting.
- We are allowed to make a lot of mistakes in our lives, except the mistake that destroys us.
- If we pay close attention we will come to realize that no day is the same as another. Every morning brings with it a hidden blessing.
- Absolute freedom does not exist; what does exist is the freedom to choose anything you like and then commit yourself to the decision.
- Start to do something. That way, time will be an ally, not an enemy.
