Respect: you earn this by bashing someone on the skull with a billy club. Honesty: if you can come up with a whopper so outrageous that everyone believes you, you win. Trust: Best not to trust anyone, not even yourself. Loyalty: What is this you speak of?

the path is not straight mistakes need not be fatal. people are more important that achievements or possessions. be gentle with your parents. never stop doing what you care about. learn to use a semicolon. you will find love. (Marion Winik)
