These I Believe

by Wells

  • Work to exhaustion when you’re young.
  • Overnight success takes years.
  • There is only one way to receive a compliment.  “Thank you.”
  • You can wait and wait for the right time to pull the trigger, but no time is ever perfect.  Leap.
  • There is no higher purpose than making other people smile.
  • Health is more than the absence of disease.
  • You have to be able to make the most of solitude, and you also have to be willing to squander it.  These can be  the same thing sometimes.
  • Karma pays out over generations, not months.
  • Salmon is just the best fish.  Bake it in foil.
  • Smart people are smart because they read.
  • No one cares about your acting process.
  • It is shameful to repeat a funny line because it wasn’t heard the first time.  Let it go.
  • When you’re not practicing, someone else is.  And when you meet him, he will beat you.
  • People love lists.
  • We don’t need monsters because we have bears.
  • There has to be a universal truth, because love is always right.  Before there was anything else, there was already love.
  • Every child born is a genius.
