“Despite the well-publicized payoffs of unscrupulous people in Wall St, big business, and government, the overwhelming reality is that good people will find success more readily because they attract other good people. And who knows, you may just meet someone who can help shine a light in a direction you never expected and that will lead you down the path to your dreams. Until then: work hard, meet good people, take risks, have fun, be patient, and don’t ever turn down an opportunity to improve yourself. You might be surprised at the result.”—10 Years a Millennial: http://gregmcbeth.com/10-years-a-millennial
“Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”—― His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Glamour: What does a supportive relationship look like to you?
LD: It’s somebody who gives you the space and time you need to do your work. Somebody who says, “You couldn’t do anything that would embarrass me. Just be yourself in a way that has integrity, and I’ll be proud of you.” I think women are conditioned to stand by their man and watch them make it to the top, but most men never believe the person they get into a relationship with is going to rise any higher than she was when they met. It takes a very special, evolved person to be able to deal with change within a relationship.
In Girls’s second season, Hannah had a brief but intense dalliance with a much older, very handsome doctor (Patrick Wilson) with a Zeitgeist-appropriate Brooklyn brownstone. Dunham was surprised to find how controversial their pairing became. “Critics said, ‘That guy wouldn’t date that girl!’ ” she explains.
“It’s like, ‘Have you been out on the street lately?’ Everyone dates everyone, for lots of reasons we can’t understand. Sexuality isn’t a perfect puzzle, like, ‘He has a nice nose and she has a nice nose! She’s got great breasts and he’s got great calves! And so they’re going to live happily ever after in a house that was purchased with their modeling money!’
It’s a complicated thing. I want people ultimately, even if they’re disturbed by certain moments, to feel bolstered and normalized by the sex that’s on the show.”

Before you study anything about marketing, social media, money, or time management, read this book. You’ll be treated to gems like this:
Our enemy is not lack of preparation; it’s not the difficulty of the project, or the state of the marketplace, or the emptiness of our bank account. The enemy is resistance. The enemy is our chattering brain, which, if we give it so much as a nanosecond, will start producing excuses, alibis, transparent self-justifications, and a million reasons why he can’t/shouldn’t/won’t do what we know we need to do.
A professional distances herself from her instrument. The pro stands at one remove from her instrument — meaning her person, her body, her voice, her talent; the physical, mental, emotional, and psychological being she uses in her work. She does not identify with this instrument. It is simply what God gave her, what she has to work with. She assesses it coolly, impersonally, objectively.
Does Madonna walk around the house in cone bras and come-f*k-me bustiers? She’s too busy planning D-Day. Madonna does not identify with “Madonna.” Madonna employs “Madonna.”
