- Children are remarkably honest creatures until we teach them not to be.

- If everyone in the TV show you're watching is good looking, it's not worth watching.

- Yelling always  makes things worse.

- Nobody has it all figured out.

- Every passing face on the street represents a story every bit as compelling and complicated as yours.

- A person who is unafraid to present a candid version of herself to the world is as rare as diamonds.

- The most common addiction in the world is the draw of comfort. It wrecks people and breaks people.

- Everyone you meet is better than you at something.

- Whoever you are, you will die. To know and understand that means you are alive.

- Getting truly organized can vastly improve anyone's life.

- The world would be a better place if everyone read National Geographic.

- 'Gut feeling' is not just a euphemism. Tension in the abdomen speaks volumes about how you truly feel about something, beyond all arguments and rationales.

- If anything is worth splurging on, it's a high-quality mattress. You'll spend a third of your life using it.

- To write a person off as worthless is an act of great violence.

- Words are immensely powerful. One cruel remark can wound someone for life.

- Most of what children learn from their parents isn't taught on purpose.

- It is worth re-trying foods that you didn't like at first.

- There are not enough women in positions of power. The world has suffered from this deficit for a long time.

- One of the best things you can do for your kids is take them on road trips. I'm not a parent, but I was kid once.
