"Without music, life would be a mistake"
"Change your thoughts and you change your world."
Norman Vincent Peale
"That which does not kill you makes you stronger."
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
"What goes around comes around" OR "You get what you give"
"Life is short, eat real sugar."
"When you follow your bliss... doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors, and where there wouldn't be a door for anyone else."
"Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music."
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit."
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who amd I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God... It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates other."
Maryann Williamson, used in Nelson Mandela's 1994 inaugural speech
"They may forget what you said. But they'll never forget how you made them feel."
