"I can’t exactly describe how I feel but it’s not quite right. And it leaves me cold."

"It’s okay to say you’ve got a weak spot. You don’t always have to be on top. Better to be hated than loved loved loved for what you’re not."

Marina and the Diamonds

If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn. If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight. If a child lives with fear, he learns to be apprehensive. If a child lives with pity, he learns to feel sorry for himself. If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy. If a child lives with jealousy, he learns to feel envy. If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty.

But...

If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient. If a child lives with encouragement, he learns to be confident. If a child lives with praise, he learns to be appreciative. If a child lives with acceptance, he learns to love. If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves. If a child lives with honesty, he learns what truth is. If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice. If children live with recognition, they learn to have a goal. If children live with sharing, they learn to be generous. If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith in himself and those about him. If a child lives with friendliness, he learns the world is a nice place in which to live… —Dorothy Law Nolte, Children Learn What They Live
