"When someone shows you who they are believe them; the first time."

"You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them."

"I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass."

"Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness."

"I don't trust people who don't love themselves and tell me, 'I love you.' ... There is an African saying which is: Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt."

"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights."

"I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better."

"You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off of you."

"Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me."

"Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option."

"Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud."

"Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it!"

"You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody."
