Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue.
Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it..
If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.
When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
Be nice to the nerds and geeks in high school -- you'll be working for them in the future.
