"There are loads of people who never get their chance. Or are compromised or don't bother or are too shy. And there's a load of people out there who've made it with a lot less talent and a lot more luck. You just have to make sure that you are firmly in the camp that whatever happens you did what you wanted." - Ricky Gervais
"Observe Everything. Always think for yourself. Never let other people make important decisions for you." — from Bad News by Edward St. Aubyn
