She also said:
What you’re supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. Don’t complain.
I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.
Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.
