“To look into that persons eyes and find yourself so completely lost in another world, a world full of absolute comfort and happiness.”

“I’m not against Twitter or Facebook. I’m not against anything. Never say never.”

“I’m not one to hide anything, but I don’t feel the need to comment directly on [my relationships]…I think it would be a shame to not live in the moment and not enjoy everything that’s happening in fear of other people’s opinions.”

“But the thing is, I was never looking at a strategic way of gaining fame. That’s not why I’m doing this.”

“I don’t like reading things that people say on the Internet because I know so much of it is not true. I don’t want to waste my time worrying about what other people are thinking. I just want to focus on being able to do cool projects.”

“Life works in mysterious ways but when you find your inner glow is back and shining brighter, you know it’s right.”

“Decisions are the endless uncertainties of life that we’ll not know if they’re right until the very end, so do the best you can and hope its right.”

“I had some difficult times when I first moved to Los Angeles when people would tell me I was saying things wrong. I felt different although my mum kept reminding me it was OK to be different.”

“In the end when you accept yourself for who you are and you work with what you’ve got, you couldn’t be more beautiful because you’re confident and everyone notices.”

“When your whole being is attracted to someone else’s whole being, then I think that is someone you were meant to be connected with at some point.”
