Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.
Try a thing you haven’t done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. And a third time, to figure out whether you like it or not.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Writing, at its best, is a lonely life.
