“1. It’s okay to be different;”
“2. One man’s trash is another grouch’s treasure;”
“3. Embrace who you are and be yourself;”
“4. Just because you’re grouchy, doesn’t mean you can’t also be kind;”

"When you present a performance, all you're waiting for is a response to it. The response might be positive and reassuring. It might also be ... terrible.
