  3. It’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself: to forgive. Forgive everybody.
  4. Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.
  5. If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
  6. People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
  7. Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.
  8. I’ve learned that that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
