I don't think the human race will
survive the next thousand years,
unless we spread into space.
There are too many accidents
that can befall life on a single
planet. But I'm an optimist.
We will reach out to the stars.
Today in downtown San Diego,
I watched a blue collar Mexican
man get harassed for being Mexican.
It was a blatant act of discrimination.
And the man actually began crying.
As he left the office building,
he took off his jacket. His t-shirt
underneath read, "I love the USA!"
“I can't change the direction of the wind,
but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”
Things I have learned in my short life:
1. Never let other people get you down.
You are your own person, and you should be who you want to be.
2. All the trivial games of popularity dissolve once you
realize that the only opinions that matter are those
from whom you trust and love
3. If you think positively things will go easier.
If you think negatively you will never be happy.
4. When you find the person, the one person, hold on and don't let go.
5. If someone who loves you says something that offends
you, you can safely assume that they didn't mean it that
6. Being a good person, means that other people will be
good to you. Or so I've experienced.
"You know the world is going crazy when the best rapper is
a white guy, the best golfer is a black guy,the tallest guy
in the NBA is Chinese, the Swiss hold the America's Cup,
France is accusing the U.S. of arrogance, Germany doesn't
want to go to war, and the three most powerful men in
America are named Bush, Dick, and Colon.
--Comedian Chris Rock
The pessimist complains about the wind;
the optimist expects it to change;
the realist adjusts the sails.
