So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

It is important to realize that your circumstances in life can change at the flip of a switch.
I’m not Catholic, I’m not Hindu, I’m not an atheist, but I’m more of a pagan and I believe in love, and I believe in emotion and romance, and sex and sexuality.
Losers are people who are so afraid of not winning, they don’t even try.
Having a large fear of failure has kept me from pursuing so many of my life’s dreams. I’ve finally gotten over it for the most part. It’s taken a lot of work but no risk, no rewards, right?

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion… love actually is all around.
The opening statement of Love Actually is one of the most profound openings that I have seen in a film. The positive messages of love that are spread throughout the film resonate with humanity. It’s definitely one of my favorite movies of all time.

Getting clear on how you feel might be the most difficult thing to do in this world full of noise. Be patient and listen… the answers will come!
Do what you love and love what you do.

When I was a teenager in Iceland people would throw rocks and shout abuse at me because they thought I was weird. I never got that in London no matter what I wore.
I love being concise and picking the exact right words for any given moment.
