Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please. - Mark Twain
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
Mark Twain

I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
Bill Cosby

You can't please everyone. When you're too focused on living up to other people's standards, you aren't spending enough time raising your own. Some people may whisper, complain and judge. But for the most part, it's all in your head. People care less about your actions than you think. Why? They have their own problems!
Kris Carr

Bad food is made without pride, by cooks who have no pride, and no love. Bad food is made by chefs who are indifferent, or who are trying to be everything to everybody, who are trying to please everyone... Bad food is fake food... food that shows fear and lack of confidence in people's ability to discern or to make decisions about their lives.
Anthony Bourdain

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.
Robert A. Heinlein
