We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.
When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can’t make them change if they don’t want to, just like when they do want to, you can’t stop them.
Andy Warhol, Andy Warhol in His Own Words
For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth.
Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.
Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.
Be humble for you are made of earth.
Be noble for you are made of stars.
