"Spend your free time the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to. Stay home on New Year’s Eve if that’s what makes you happy. Skip the committee meeting. Cross the street to avoid making aimless chitchat with random acquaintances. Read. Cook. Run. Write a story."

"You will find great inner peace when you do not need others to act in a certain way to be happy yourself."
"You were born with the ability to change someone’s life, don’t waste it."
