My psychiatrist said to me, “Take these pills and you’ll be all right.” I told him that there’s nothing wrong with me, it’s the rest of the world, “I know. But it’s easier for you to take the pills than the rest of the world.”
I went to see my psychiatrist the other day and told him that I was talking to myself. He replied, “That’s all right. Just hold a mobile phone by your mouth.”

I’m not a backup plan, and definitely not a second choice.
I’m a shy person. When you first meet me, our conversation is going to be awkward because I would have absolutely nothing to say to you. It’s even worse when I find you attractive. But if you give me time, I’ll probably get comfortable around you. And then I’ll start talking so much that it’ll annoy you.
A woman’s best jewellery is her shyness.
Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.
– Nelson Mandela
