    Sly Stallone: “Never let anyone see you frown. Ever.” 

    sly

    You know why? Because you can’t read a smile, but you can definitely read a frown, and people do not want to see other people who are young, handsome, beautiful, talented, and making good money acting like they’ve got gigantic problems. Frowning. I mean, you want problems? Go out there into the world; there’s billions of problems. So I’d probably tell myself: never, ever, ever publicly feel sorry about yourself, talk about your terrible upbringing, mope, frown, or complain. I don’t want to hear about it. Start to get involved in other people’s lives. Be supportive of them. Be charitable. That’s the first thing. Serving other people, that’s not only the right thing to do for the world, but it’s the best thing you can do for yourself. I really believe that.

    Miley Cyrus on living in LA compared to NY 

    Miley Cyrus on living in LA compared to NY

    The thing about L.A. is it’s pretty much always nice out here.

    Even when it was 100 the other day, I loved it.

    It felt good.

    I worked on my album in Philly, and I would take the train to New York on the weekends,

    and I’d get off the train

    and immediately want to die.

    I would just hate my life.

    And I’m from Nashville, which is kind of similar – when it’s hot, it’s fucking miserable.

    But Nashville, at least it kind of rains in the summer.

    I don’t even remember the last time it rained out here.

    I always wondered how those big-ass fires start in L.A.,

    and then I’ll throw my cigarette out the window or something,

    and I’m like

    “There it is.”

    perspective 

    “The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”

    – Douglas Adams

    everyone always ends up quoting the wrong best andy warhol quote 

    andy warhol

    im not sure i agree with this one but it sure makes you think

    it makes me think “ok if this is true what am i doing about it”

    it makes me think “ok if this is true what about all those nights i didnt kiss anyone good nite at all”

    it makes me think “why would even andy freakin warhol settle for kissing the wrong person”

    it makes me think “after all these years being people on this planet we cant even get this one right?”

    it makes me think “maybe sometimes famous people say silly things and we write it down even if we shouldnt”

    it makes me think “please god please dont be true”

    it makes me think “maybe because the older we get the less value we put on kissing, foolishly”

    your playing small does not serve the world 

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

    It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most.

    We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’

    Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.

    Your playing small does not serve the world.

    There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you.

    We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
    It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us.

    And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

    As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

    — Nelson Mandella, from his 1994 inauguration speech
