    Quitting smoking is easy, I've done it a hundred times.
    -My Grade 12 Philosophy teacher.

    To alcohol: The cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems.
    -Homer Simpson

    Everyone has the ability to learn a new skill, but it takes creativity to define your originality.
    -My Grade 12 English teacher

    I feel as if I don't fit in with 99% of humanity. Then I realised 1% is approximately 60 million people so it's all good.

    He who knows other men is discerning; he who knows himself is intelligent. He who overcomes others is strong; he who overcomes himself is mighty. He who is satisfied with his lot is rich; he who goes on acting with energy has a (firm) will. He who does not fail in the requirements of his position, continues long; he who dies and yet does not perish, has longevity.

    “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.â€
