5. "Feeling sorry for someone is not loving them."

6. "You'd worry less about what people think of you if you realized how little they do."

7. "Naps are awesome when you're an adult."

8. "You can't change a person."

9. "Time passes whether you attempt your goals or not."

10. "You won't have to try hard to get the right guy to notice you."

11. "Don't lose your mind over every little thing."

12. "You have to demand respect for yourself. It's rare that people just give it to you."
