If you want to be happy, set a goal that connects your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.
We don't see things as they are; we see things as we are.
Education is when you read the fine print. Experience is what you get if you don't.
A successful life is one that is lived through understanding and pursuing one's own path, not chasing after the dreams of others.
