Quote Dr. Ellis
“The art of love is largely the art of persistence.”
“The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president [even if he is Trump! ~Rex] You realize that you control your own destiny.”
|“Acceptance is not love. You love a person because he or she has lovable traits, but you accept everybody just because they’re alive and human.”|
|“By not caring too much about what people think, I’m able to think for myself and propagate ideas which are very often unpopular. And I succeed.|
|“By not caring too much about what people think, I’m able to think for myself and propagate ideas which are very often unpopular. And I succeed with them because, again, I don’t care too much what other people think.”|
