"The things you learn in maturity aren't simple things such as
acquiring information and skills. You learn not to engage in
self-destructive behavior. You learn not to burn up energy in anxiety.
You discover how to manage your tensions. You learn that self-pity and
resentment are among the most toxic of drugs. You find that the world
loves talent but pays off on character."- Maria Ressa, Head of News and Current Affairs, ABS-CBN
"You come to understand that most people are neither for you nor
against you; they are thinking about themselves. You learn that no matter
how hard you try to please, some people in this world are not going to love
you, a lesson that is at first troubling and then really quite relaxing."
Good lessons to learn. Let's all grow this 2011. ;)
