Looking in a Mirror

“When you look at yourself in a mirror, do you like what you see, or do you judge your body and use the word to tell yourself lies? If you believe that you are not attractive enough, then you believe a lie, and you are using the word against yourself, against the truth.”

Company: Option vs. Necessity

“Someone told me the other day that he felt bad for single people because they are lonely all the time. I told him that’s not true; I’m single and I don’t feel lonely. I take myself out to eat, I buy myself clothes. I have great times by myself. Once you know how to take care of yourself, company becomes an option and not a necessity.”
~ Keanu Reeves

Stealing It
