People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.

Nothing will fuck up your twenties more than thinking you’re supposed to have your shit together.
<How to Get a Boyfriend>
- Order a cup of coffee to take-out.
- Give the coffee to a male you are interested in and tell him, “If the coffee tastes good, we date; if not, bug off.”
- The coffee at our café is good. It is guaranteed that you will end up dating.
- If, by chance, you get dumped, then come back. We will give you a cup of hot coffee that you can pour on his face.
Each relationship changes you, whether it’s a little or a lot, for the better or for worse. You have no control over that. Just make sure, please, that you learn from each one and try your hardest to manipulate that change to your benefit.
Recently I’ve learned that you can’t wait around for life to be good for you, you have to make it good for yourself with the resources that you have. That’s why you could own the whole entire world but if you don’t have the drive and urge to make your life special then you own absolutely nothing in the end.

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
