As you get older, you’ll discover parts of yourself that you don’t like, aren’t comfortable with, or wish were different. Chances are, many of them you won’t be able to change. All you can do with those is understand them, accept them if you can, and make damn sure the bad ones don’t get out unless you really need them to. But never fret over them. You’re no less for knowing your dark as well as your light.

If you can fall in love with a new girl every minute, and not be faithful to a single one –
Yours is the world and every woman in it; and what’s more, you’ll be a cad, my son.
