Life is short. Don’t wait for tomorrow.

Don’t waste time pretending you don’t want to do the things you do. You do them because, on some level, somewhere in your body, you want to. The question never is “how do I stop?” It’s “what am I getting out of this?”

That hot, interesting-looking chick over there? Go talk to her.

Saying “yes” is almost always better than saying “no.” Not always. But almost always.

Pleasure is great, but it has absolutely nothing to do with happiness. Ditto money.

Kids are the most interesting people in a room. Always.

When in doubt, ask questions.

Smart people ask for help.

Trying to demonstrate how intelligent you are almost always is the most effective way to demonstrate eighteen other things about yourself. But not the thing you’re trying to demonstrate.

Say something! (I just did....)
