The greatest thing in the world is to know how to belong to oneself.

Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.

Observe what your nature requires of you.

Tell yourself, first of all, what kind of man you want to be; and then go ahead with what you are doing.

I accept the great adventure of being me.

Let me be that I am and seek not to alter me.
