Mandy Hale
“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”
Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

Erik Pevernagie

Joanne Harris, The Girl with No Shadow

Scott Stabile

Ufuoma Apoki
“There's the 'right way' and the 'usual way'.
Folks tend to confuse both.
The right way isn't always the best way, and the usual way leaves you lost in the crowd of the common.
Then, there's the 'unusual way', which might be right or 'wrong'; but when it births success, it usually has the power to invalidate the right way and the usual way.”
Ufuoma Apoki

All those things I've already mentioned. Your tall and strong, loyal and brave, kind and loving. You stand out in a crowd and your a leader. He wouldn't trust those qualities with just anyone. He must love you a great deal.”
Colleen Coble, Safe in His Arms

Munia Khan

Adhish Mazumder
“Yes I have done it all. Tested the shallow waters, swam through the dangerous tides, met strangers, seen friends turn strangers, taken risks to achieve my goals, persevered to out do myself each time, rose high, fell hard, learned to climb, learned to dream and in dreaming learned to relate to reality.
I have earned respect, achieved things very young, believed in my potential, questioned it too but through it all I have never stopped to aspire. I am a human and I must adapt to the changing seasons, learn new skills and master them all.
Now as I stand and look up, I see a heap of laurels yet to achieve and chest of mysteries yet to resolve. I am not one in the crowd. I'll forever be the one whom they could never be”
Adhish Mazumder

“There is this one thing that makes a big difference: creativity! There is this one thing that gives birth to great things: imaginations! The world we see is a product of creativity and imaginations, and they that know the power of creativity and how to give life to their imaginations live and leave distinctive footprints!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“It takes gumption to wake up every day to face the fickle world and cleave to your morals and values
Not flinch at the slightest inflection of disrespect or disdain from wild ones
to not give in and mimic the mockery of blending in void of integrity
Standing resplendent among the dull and dirty ones who are no longer enthralled with the light of living
Who’ve renounced their identity for worldy pleasures
It takes audacity to live individually, intellectually, compassionately in your own way
Do it anyway!”
Emmanuella Raphaelle

Rebekah Crane
