Everyone has their own ways of expression. I believe we all have a lot to say, but finding ways to say it is more than half the battle.
Good works is giving to the poor and the helpless, but divine works is showing them their worth to the One who matters.
Like crying wolf, if you keep looking for sympathy as a justification for your actions, you will someday be left standing alone when you really need help.
When good people consider you the bad guy, you develop a heart to help the bad ones. You actually understand them.
There are two circumstances that lead to arrogance: one is when you're wrong and you can't face it; the other is when you're right and nobody else can face it.
The harder you fall, the heavier your heart; the heavier your heart, the stronger you climb; the stronger you climb, the higher your pedestal.
Persistence. Perfection. Patience. Power. Prioritize your passion. It keeps you sane.
When a man is penalized for honesty he learns to lie.
A lonely day is God's way of saying that he wants to spend some quality time with you.
I would rather a romantic relationship turn into contempt than turn into apathy. The passion in the extremities make it appear as though it once meant something. We grow from hot or cold, but lukewarm is the biggest insult.
At first, they'll only dislike what you say, but the more correct you start sounding the more they'll dislike you.
If you build the guts to do something, anything, then you better save enough to face the consequences.
True rebels hate their own rebellion. They know by experience that it is not a cool and glamorous lifestyle; it takes a courageous fool to say things that have not been said and to do things that have not been done.
If love is blind, then maybe a blind person that loves has a greater understanding of it.
When you're the only sane person, you look like the only insane person.
As long as I am breathing, in my eyes, I am just beginning.
The only thing more frustrating than slanderers is those foolish enough to listen to them.
Man is not, by nature, deserving of all that he wants. When we think that we are automatically entitled to something, that is when we start walking all over others to get it.
Telling an introvert to go to a party is like telling a saint to go to Hell.
If a man cannot understand the beauty of life, it is probably because life never understood the beauty in him.
Closed in a room, my imagination becomes the universe, and the rest of the world is missing out.
Listen to God with a broken heart. He is not only the doctor who mends it, but also the father who wipes away the tears.
Never hide things from hardcore thinkers. They get more aggravated, more provoked by confusion than the most painful truths.
The biggest challenge after success is shutting up about it.
To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.
Grudges are for those who insist that they are owed something; forgiveness, however, is for those who are substantial enough to move on.
Just because something isn't a lie does not mean that it isn't deceptive. A liar knows that he is a liar, but one who speaks mere portions of truth in order to deceive is a craftsman of destruction.
To say that one waits a lifetime for his soulmate to come around is a paradox. People eventually get sick of waiting, take a chance on someone, and by the art of commitment become soulmates, which takes a lifetime to perfect.
I'm convinced that most men don't know what they believe, rather, they only know what they wish to believe. How many people blame God for man's atrocities, but wouldn't dream of imprisoning a mother for her son's crime?
In order to share one's true brilliance one initially has to risk looking like a fool: genius is like a wheel that spins so fast, it at first glance appears to be sitting still.
An over- indulgence of anything, even something as pure as water, can intoxicate.
Confidence is like a dragon where, for every head cut off, two more heads grow back.
The older you get, the more you understand how your conscience works. The biggest and only critic lives in your perception of people's perception of you rather than people's perception of you.
Everyone pretends to be 'free thinkers', but few individuals pass the line into expressive territories that may be detrimental to their own social well-being.
Creative people are often found either disagreeable or intimidating by mediocrities.
You are evidence of your mother's strength, especially if you are a rebellious knucklehead and regardless she has always maintained her sanity.
I don't pretend to know everything; I just only speak on matters I know I'll win.
A poet should be so crafty with words that he is envied even for his pains.
A young outcast will often feel that there is something wrong with himself, but as he gets older, grows more confident in who he is, he will adapt, he will begin to feel that there is something wrong with everyone else.
I imagine that the intelligent people are the ones so intelligent that they don't even need or want to look 'intelligent' anymore.
