True friendship...

 Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence - true friendship is a plant of slow growth.

The health of being optimistic...

 New research shows that when you're optimistic, it lowers your risk of heart disease by 35%. One way to become more optimistic is to think thoughts of gratitude. Thinking of things you're grateful for is a good start, writing them down even better, but sending a note or e-mail to a person expressing your gratitude is best.

What you have in life...

 If you look at what you have in life, you'll always have more. If you look at what you don't have in life, you'll never have enough.

As a kid...

 Mainly, I thought of Barney Fife as a kid. You can always look into the faces of kids and see what they're thinking, if they're happy or sad. That's what I tried to do with Barney.

10,000 kicks...

 I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who had practiced one kick 10,000 times.

Happiness is...

 Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to look like and celebrating it for everything that it is.

Remind yourself...

 "I remind myself every morning: Nothing I say this day will teach me anything. So if I'm going to learn, I must do it by listening. I never learned anything while I was talking." — Larry King

Finding something else...

 My biggest advice is if you feel that what you're working on every day is not really what makes you happy, change. Start finding something else. It may take you six months, it may take you a year. But honestly, don't spend a day of your life working on anything other than the stuff that makes you happy.
