Ideas come from everything.
Innovative people will seek ideas from anything that surrounds them. You must analyze certain dimensions of things, and hence you will be able to earn great ideas.
Like Newton discovered gravity from a mundane activity of falling of an apple. You can invent anything if you keep an open mind.
If I won't be myself, who will?
Never try to be something that you are not. The real peace you will find is when you understand yourself and start to be yourself completely.
When you try to become someone that you are not, more than often, you fail.
I have a feeling that inside you somewhere, there's somebody nobody knows about.
Everyone has a part in them, which is so private that no one can see it. Everyone has a whole other world situated in them. We choose what we want to portray and what we want to keep protected. So never let what others think about you change your being.
