  4. "Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius, and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring."
  5. "Respect is one of life's greatest treasures. I mean, what does it all add up to if you don't have that?"
  6. "To all the girls who think you're fat because you're not a size zero. You're the beautiful one. It's society who's ugly."
  7. "I want to grow old without facelifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made."
  8. "Friendship is the bestiest thing that comes to life. Friends will always be there for you don't worry about the fakes worry about the people who had your back from the start and never treated you wrong always remember they are your real friends don't never take them as granted because one day you're going to lose a good friend by the way your action's are when you see a good friend stick to that person."
