Personal Quotes

It's better to waste money, than it is to waste time. You can always get more money

"Whatever people may think, I'm not making an enormous amount of money. It's still three times more money than I've ever made, maximum, and five times more than my average. So, I'm definitely stylin'. I can afford more than three pairs of jeans now." -E! Online, July 1999

You don't have a choice of whether to learn your lessons in this life. You have a choice whether to learn through joy or through fear.
