  • Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear.
  • The fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.
  • People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want.
  • Every blessing ignored becomes a curse.
  • Sometimes what's in your head isn't as crazy as you think.
  • We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
  • You can make very bad teams with very good individuals.
  • Admitting mistakes means you have a sense of responsibility in your actions and that shows you are more matured than almost anyone. -Nithin
