A rose that blooms in the desert has the privilege of being the only flower for miles.
If roses were not special weeds would not envy them.
Everything here at St. Aggie’s is upside down and inside out. It’s our job not to get moon blinked and to stand right side up in an upside down world. If we don’t do that we’ll never be able to escape. We’ll never be able to think. And thinking is the only way we’ll be able to plan an escape.”
Don’t fight with narrow minded people; be determined to compel them to change their mindsets about who you stand to be, not by arguments, but by focusing on what you do every day. If they change it, fine; if they don’t, fine. The good news is that you are pursuing excellence!
When you are convinced that what you offer is yours, whether it be mediocre or of standard quality, your originality will make people love you in a way you did not expect.
To be envied for your giftedness is better than to be accepted for your untalentedness.
Never strive to be part of the norm. If people think you strange…CELEBRATE. Normal people try way to hard to please others and never end up pleasing themselves. Be ABnormal. It’s more fun.
If you plant your crops in the weather of pride they will grow tall and fall down. Take away pride and your dreams will stand.
All people are standing; you got to standout! All people are breaking grounds; you got to breakthrough grounds! Don’t settle for less; rise up and stand tall in what you do!
