"We’ve got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can’t just accept it and leave it in a cupboard or just think it’s going to get on by itself. You’ve got to keep on watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it."
"The essence of life is not being perfect, impressing people, or succeeding at everything. The essence of life is simply making mistakes and learning from them, surrounding yourself with people that love you when you’re being yourself and getting through the failures so that you can continue improving."
