• Everyone and everything seems normal from a distance.
• When you die you can’t take anything or anyone with you. Memories are all that remain. Make them count.
• If you are breathing now, congratulations! You still have a chance to fulfill your bucket list. Don’t hesitate.
• Don’t make public generalizations about sex, race or age. Doing so will almost certainly bite you in the ass.
• When something is troubling your worried mind, ask yourself this question: “Will this issue really make a difference in my life one year from now?” If the answer is no, move on.
• The key to saving and maintaining a relationship starts with two simple words: “I’m sorry.”
• Never underestimate the joy of life’s simple pleasures…
• Beginnings and endings: Both are powerful, memorable and necessary. Don’t be afraid to start. Don’t be afraid to bring something to an end.
• Alcohol fogs your judgment. Sometimes for the best, and sometimes for the worst. Use accordingly.
• Why wait to look back on it and laugh? You may as well laugh about it now.

• Lessons cannot be taught, they can only be learned.
• Compliments go a long way. When given the chance, always make people feel good about themselves.
• True wisdom is achieved through life experience. No book or classroom can teach this.
• Don’t give other people advice unless they ask for it.
• Don’t argue or flirt with someone via email or text messaging. Most people are not poets. The message will get lost in translation, and may end up in the wrong hands altogether.

• Own up to your mistakes the instant you realize you’ve made them. People will respect your honesty, and your conscience will thank you.

• Don’t let mistakes from the past corrupt your future ambitions.
• In life and in love, you get what you put in.
• Don’t spend your whole life waiting for the ‘right time’.
• In many cases you will learn more from failure than you will from success.
