You can't judge something you don't understand
Sometimes silence says more than words
You gotta be smarter than your competitor
What makes other people happy may not make you happy
Don't tell me what they said about me.. Tell me why they were so comfortable to say it in front of you
You can't expect to be great when you practice mediocre
Before you talk about other people you've got to take a look in the mirror first
