The fool fear incompletion and so fail even commencement.

The fool cling for life to the noose.

A diamond’s beauty is but the quality of light reflected, is but the quality of its facets.

A fledgling must risk falling if it is ever to realize flight.

One’s past reflects one’s priorities, just as one’s priorities will forecast one’s future.

Erase prejudice; rewrite perception.

Others’ perceptions of you do not define you.

Truth is not a trend.

Beware the thief who steals with your consent.

Where growls a sheep, feigns a wolf.

Delusion is a choice.

gorgeous and dangerous, go slowly-
