My success was due to good luck, hard work, and support and advice from friends and mentors. But most importantly, it depended on me to keep trying after I had failed.
My dad raised me with some good advice: 'Always tell the truth. Always shoot from the hip. You might not have many friends, but you'll never have enemies, because people will always know where you're coming from.'
Advice from friends is like the weather. Some of it is good; some of it is bad.
I've learned the most from Randy Harrison. Because of his fantastic imaginary world filled with bizarre friends. He is constantly giving us good advice.
Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.
