  5.  “When I was a child, my father used to encourage my brother and me to fail. At the dinner table, instead of asking about the best part of our day, he would ask us what we failed at that week. If we didn’t have anything to tell him, he would be disappointed.

  7. “What a woman does or does not do to her face is personal. And as with most other things, makeup or a lack thereof can serve as either a prison or a fortress commanded by the mind: you can become a slave to it, or it can set you free.” – Leandra Medine

  9. “You are not supposed to be happy all the time. Life hurts and it’s hard. Not because you’re doing it wrong, but because it hurts for everybody. Don’t avoid the pain. You need it.

  10. “The great courageous act that we must all do, is to have the courage to step out of our history and past so that we can live our dreams.”

  12. Something I was adamant about was that the movie [Everybody Loves Somebody] wouldn’t end with, oh, marriage saved [the main character]. They’re married and she’s OK. I was very pushing on having the ending be that she made an inner growth of healing so that she can then have the ability and the space to love and be loved by someone else, and that love is open-ended and doesn’t mean they’re going to get married tomorrow and all her problems are solved.”
