Favorite Quotes:

"My favorite fruit is grapes. Because with grapes, you always get another chance. 'Cause, you know, if you have a bad apple or peach, you're stuck with that bad piece of fruit. But if you have a bad grape, no problem - just move onto the next. Grapes: The fruit of Hope"

"You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough."

"Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love."

"The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for."

"There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate."
