I no longer look for the good in people, I search for the real… because while good is often dressed in fake clothing, real is naked and proud no matter the scars.-Chishala Lishomwa
I’m writing about real things. Real people. Real characters. You have to believe what I write about is true or you wouldn’t pay any attention at all. Sometimes it’s me, or a composite of me and other people. Sometimes it’s not me at all.Lou Reed
Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.
If you don’t like my words, don’t listen. If you don’t like my appearance, don’t look. If you don’t like my actions, turn your head; It’s as simple as that.
Romantic art deals with the exception and with the individual. Good people, belonging as they do to the normal, and so, commonplace type, are artistically uninteresting.Oscar Wilde
I think I grew up with a profound sense of watching people who were good people, who were smart people, who were hardworking people – God, nobody on this Earth worked harder than my mom and dad – and they had very little.Elizabeth Warren
We often assume that if we are good people we will not suffer the ills of the world.Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
