Marilyn Manson : 'I want to be like you.'
Unknown : 'If you want to be like me, be yourself!' Marilyn Manson
I may not be the prettiest, smartest or strongest. But at least I'm me and I don't pretend to be someone I'm not meant to be.
It's better to be hated for the person you are, than to be loved for the person you're not.
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
Who you are inside is what helps you make and do everything in life.
What other people think of you is none of you business.
There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
'I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong.'
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What's right for you - just listen to
The voice that speaks inside.
in Shel Silverstein (Book quote) Every Thing on It
She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.
Once in a while it really hits people that they don't have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.
Don't become something just because someone else wants you to, or because it's easy; you won't be happy. You have to do what you really, really, really, really want to do, even if it scares the shit out of you.
from Ash Ketchum (Series quote) Pokémon
There's no sense in going out of your way, just to get somebody to like you.
You've got enemies? Good. That means you actually stood up for something.
The big lesson in life, baby, is never be scared of anyone or anything.
People often remark that I'm pretty lucky. Luck is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment. After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it.
Sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, I'm not going to make it, but you laugh inside — remembering all the times you've felt that way.
The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.
in Sarah Dessen (Book quote) Keeping the Moon
You should never be surprised when someone treats you with respect, you should expect it.
If you limit your actions in life to things that nobody can possibly find fault with, you will not do much.
