The older you get, the easier it is to speak your mind.

It’s no fun being around people with closed minds.

Laughter is the best exercise for body, mind, and soul.

Inner beauty is more lasting and more important than outer beauty.

Freedom and liberty are not the same thing.

Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.

You can’t have freedom and security – pick one.

It’s becoming harder and harder to have a rational discussion with someone whose mind is made up.

Gratitude shouldn’t just be for the good things in life; we should be grateful for the bad, too, because those are the times that refine us and make us think about who we are and what is important to us.
