Love people. Use things. The opposite never works.
The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed...
I want to inspire people, I want someone to look at me and say “because of you, I didn’t give up.”
Invest in people who invest in you.
Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
