“If I hadn’t been told I was garbage, I wouldn’t have learned how to show people I’m talented,
and if everyone had always laughed at my jokes, I wouldn’t have figured out how to be so funny.
If they hadn’t told me I was ugly, I never would have searched for my beauty,
and if they hadn’t tried to break me down, I wouldn’t know that I’m unbreakable.”

““Boy, I remember on the farm, when we’d get depressed, Grandma could always cheer us up.
She’d take out her dentures and take a healthy swig of the aquarium and then hold a flashlight under a chin,
so we could watch the goldfish swim from cheek to cheek.
Boy, we could have watched them all day, but visiting hours were only from 10 to 4.”’
Make the most of it!”
