Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing.
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.
I don't do fashion, I AM fashion.

No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.
To give real service, you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money.
Treat a work of art like a prince. Let it speak to you first.
A liar will not be believed even when he speaks the truth.
Defeat is not defeat unless accepted as a reality-in your own mind.
