Book cover for The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life
You can’t be an important and life-changing presence for some people without also being a joke and an embarrassment to others. You just can’t.
Brené Brown
“We fail the minute we let someone else define success for us.”
Brené Brown, Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.

Amanda Palmer
“You can’t ever give people what they want. But you can give them something else. You can give them empathy. You can give them understanding. And that’s a lot, and enough to give.”
Amanda Palmer, The Art of Asking; or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help

Elizabeth Gilbert
“Basically, your fear is like a mall cop who thinks he’s a Navy SEAL: He hasn’t slept in days, he’s all hopped up on Red Bull, and he’s liable to shoot at his own shadow in an absurd effort to keep everyone “safe.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

Brené Brown
“If you are not in the arena getting your ass kicked on occasion, I’m not interested in or open to your feedback. There are a million cheap seats in the world today filled with people who will never be brave with their lives but who will spend every ounce of energy they have hurling advice and judgment at those who dare greatly. Their only contributions are criticism, cynicism, and fearmongering. If you’re criticizing from a place where you’re not also putting yourself on the line, I’m not interested in what you have to say.”
Brené Brown, Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.

Amanda Palmer
“Those who ask without fear learn to say two things, with or without words, to those they are facing: I deserve to ask and You are welcome to say no. Because the ask that is conditional cannot be a gift.”
Amanda Palmer, The Art of Asking; or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help
