"It’s difficult to be sensible when you want the best for your children. Especially when you remember your desires when you were their age, your insecurities about the way you dressed, your physical appearance."
"Personal problems can definitely ruin your career. They can, if you let them. But if you survive them, they can make you stronger, more effective."
"Nights, Sundays, and holidays were not to be spent working behind a counter or eating a burrito on the road. Those hours were for family."
“When people are angry, their behavior can be extreme. They can make big mistakes."
"Because you feel betrayed doesn’t mean you truly have been."
"I would do it because I have self-respect and because I don’t want anyone to take care of me. I simply want to be cared for, and there’s a very big difference between the two."
"People were just as cruel to animals as they were to each other."
"No one can ever be sure of anything."
"We take risks when we allow ourselves to love."
"Things will either get worse or better, but they won’t stay the same."
"The irony is that people don’t really give a damn. They’re too preoccupied with themselves."
“Make sure what you’re doing is for you."
"Don’t hang your future on a hope that may not be there."
"Family members tend to stick together in matters like this, even if they don’t get along."
"I’ve always wanted things to be easy. They almost never are."
