1. "Anger is nothing more than an outward expression of hurt, fear and frustration."
2. "It's better to be healthy alone than sick with someone else."
3. "I think we pull the trigger on divorce in America way too quickly. I think if you're going to get a divorce, you've got to earn your way out, and that means you've got to do all the work. You have to turn over every stone, investigate every avenue of rehabilitation you can before you quit."
4. "When you don't respond to what happens in the world, you don't respond to what people say to you. What you do is respond to what you say to yourself about what they say to you. It's all about you, it's not about them."
5. "You cannot be who and what you are unless you have a lifestyle, both internally and externally, that is designed to support that definition of self."
6. "You have the duty and gift of living. You don't have the right to sit on the sidelines--use your life and get back into the game."
7. "My dad used to say that the holidays are when you get a whole bunch of people that really aren't that close and don't know each other that well and overcrowd them into a small room for an extended period of time so they can make each other miserable."
8. "I believe that you control as much of your life as you want to. The choice is yours."
9. "Why on earth would you look to your parents for advice? If they were happy, prosperous and intelligent, you wouldn't be in this mess in the first place!"
10. "To get ahead in your life, you have to 'get real' with yourself first."
