Miracles can happen, even to those who are small, flammable, and dressed all in black.

A new experience can be extremely pleasurable, or extremely irritating, or somewhere in between, and you never know until you try it out.

There are times in this harum-scarum world when figuring out the right thing to do is quite simple, but doing the right thing is simply impossible, and then you must do something else.

Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant filled with odd little waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don`t always like.

Oftentimes, when people are miserable, they will want to make other people miserable, too. But it never helps.

Sometimes, just saying that you hate something, and having someone agree with you, can make you feel better about a terrible situation.

Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.

It is terribly rude to tell people that their troubles are boring.

People don`t always get what they deserve in this world.

Just because something is traditional is no reason to do it.

There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.

It is difficult, when faced with a situation you cannot control, to admit you can do nothing.

There are two kinds of fears: rational and irrational - or, in simpler terms, fears that make sense and fears that don`t.
