"Better to be too early than a little bit late."I'm an 8.
I pause here to note that, while I have said many good things about my dad, I of course acknowledge that no one is perfect, including myself and my father. We all have shortcomings and downfalls."Andre, remember that when someone is generous to us, chooses to help us and spend time with us or gives us many good things, we cannot be selfish. It cannot be a one-way street. We must give back."
"Pizza subs are good...except they don't have enough meat in them. You should try the meatball footlong instead, it has more meat."(This may or may not explain why he is such good friends with Nick Onie.)
"I will always remember Nonie's kindness on a dark rainy night after a function when he drove me home.
His home is quite far from mine, some 40 minutes to 1 hour from where I live. Although I was just a friend to him - not a special person of interest - Nonie insisted on driving me home.
Not only did he drive me home but when we arrived at my place, he came out of the car and stood in the pouring rain to watch me get into my house safely - through the door and into my home. I'll never forget it :)
He is such a gentleman in that sense, and I feel that this aspect of him isn't often recognised as it should be."
"Hard work always overcomes raw talent."
(That is, someone who works hard will, in the end, always 'be better than' someone who is exceptionally gifted.)
"Hard work tends to overcome raw talent when the 'raw talent' chooses to remain idle."
(That is, someone who works hard will, eventually, in all probability, 'be better than' the 'raw talent' where the 'raw talent' chooses to do nothing to hone, maintain or improve their exceptional ability.)
