5. “True self worth is measured in how happy you are in the life you’re living. Discover what you really want out of life, then go out and get it. As long as you stay on that path, you are a success.”

12. “When the man with the money controls what the people see and what the people hear, and the people gather together in a herd, saying ‘if the man with the money doesn’t like it, it must be crap’ you know you’re living in a blind, sad society.”

13. “You know what kind of person hurts others and does it for his own amusement? A spoiled, rotten, undisciplined little child. Doesn’t matter how old they are. That’s what they are.”

14. “We are capable of so much, but ultimately we’re all procrastinators inside. Just look at the government, big business, the oil industry. It’s easier to do it one way, so we put off the better solutions– the true solutions– until tomorrow.”

15. “The best things in life are the ones you build with your own two hands. The more of yourself you put into a project, the better it ultimately is.”

16. “The man is worth less than a potato on a stick.”

17. “Me? I don’t believe in death. I don’t. I plan to live forever, or die trying.”
