“I can’t stand people who seem perfect. They make me feel inadequate. And that’s not a nice way to go through life, is it? Going around making other people feel inadequate. So let’s have none of it. Let’s all aim to be the best but acknowledge that it won’t always happen. Just like gemstones, it’s the flaws, the weaknesses, the imperfections that lend character. A flaw in a gemstone may detract from its value (though not always), but it also proves that it’s genuine.”

“I judge a man by how he acts around hot women.

Does he turn to a simp and get all laughy, agreeable, and talkative? Or does he keep cool and collected in his masculine frame?

90% of guys are the former because they have no idea what masculine frame is.”

“What we do and what we take seriously can often be so far removed from what it is actually all about that it is laughable. We get bogged down in trivia, lost in irrelevant detail to such an extent that our life can whizz past and we don’t even notice. By letting go of things that really aren’t important, we can put ourselves back on the right track. And the best way to do that is through humor — laughing at ourselves, laughing at our situation, but never laughing at others — they’re just as lost as we are and don’t need to be laughed at.”
