“The only reason I am successful is because I have stayed true to myself.”

“You’ve got to have confidence in the very thing that makes you unique – then wait for the world to catch up.”

“Maybe my best isn’t as good as someone else’s, but for a lot of people, my best is enough. Most importantly, for me it’s enough.”

“I make art for the sake of art . . . and for my own selfish gratification, because I’m an artistic monster.”

“We can ALWAYS make a difference to someone, no matter what role we play.”

“If I break the glass, then I’ll have to fly, There’s no one to catch me if I take a dive. I’m scared of change, and the days stay the same, The world is spinning but only in gray.”

“I am so much happier when I am doing the things that make me me, and that’s living by my standards and doing the things I love, using my talents, however random they are, to share with other people.”

“Life is kind, and full of great moments, but I think the greatest moment of my life is always ahead of me. When I reach it, there will be another, greater moment to come.”

“Am I the best violinist in the world? No. Do I need to be the best to bring people joy? No.”

“By finding the courage to be ourselves, we gain the power to make a difference.”

“Happiness takes work, but it’s achievable for everyone.”
