- "Que sera, sera "

Spanish for whatever will be, will be. Nothing more to be said on that. For the believers of destiny and fate, for the ideas of meant-to-be's, there's nothing that needs to be done, becase que sera, sera.


- "Be somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody"

Although I feel it is better to dream of doing something rather than becoming someone, it's more or less the same if by being that someone you can do things in a way that makes everybody else feel like a mere somebody. All this quote asks you to do is to stand out in the crowd instead of trying to fit in.

-"Everything in life has a beautiful ending, if it is not beautiful then believe it is not the end "

- "Don't break through the fence without knowing why it's been put up. "

All those times, they tell you to keep your boundaries, or to not go beyond a limit, and yet sometimes you can't withstand the urge to break through, because for you the alternative is similar to being caged. But the consequences only unfold later, which is why they say experience is the best teacher. Realization dawns then as to why the fence was put up. It is therefore unwise to break through without knowing why it's been put up.

***

  - "Make your burdens a challenge "

When there's so much to do and the only thing that stays put in  your head is tension, worry and fear, and when something more is added to the heap, wouldn't we call it a burden? But my mother taught me not to. She told me to call it a challenge instead, and I think it is a great way of seeing it.
