** Follow your passions, and success will follow you ** Nothing in life is stacked against you in your life except your own thinking ** When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth ** Many great ideas have been lost because the people who had them could not stand being laughed at ** Every youth owes himself and to the world to make the most possible out of the stuff that is in him ** A man in the sum of his actions, of what he has done, of what he can do, nothing else ** You see, in life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is enough! You must take action ** All achievement is the triumph of persistence **
