“I was an abusive, selfish, needy, angry asshole.

Now I'm just kind of selfish, a little less angry, occasionally needy, with flights of asshole. I've grown.”
Marc Maron, Attempting Normal

“I was fifteen years old when I understood how it is that things break down: people can't imagine someone else's point of view.”
Sonia Sotomayor, My Beloved World

“Don't mistake politeness for lack of strength.”
Sonia Sotomayor

“When a young person, even a gifted one, grows up without proximate living examples of what she may aspire to become--whether lawyer, scientist, artist, or leader in any realm--her goal remains abstract. Such models as appear in books or on the news, however inspiring or revered, are ultimately too remote to be real, let alone influential. But a role model in the flesh provides more than inspiration; his or her very existence is confirmation of possibilities one may have every reason to doubt, saying, 'Yes, someone like me can do this.”
Sonia Sotomayor

“. . . But experience has taught me that you cannot value dreams according to the odds of their coming true. Their real value is in stirring within us the will to aspire. That will, wherever it finally leads, does at least move you forward. And after a time you may recognize that the proper measure of success is not how much you've closed the distance to some far-off goal but the quality of what you've done today.”
Sonia Sotomayor, My Beloved World
