Life is hard but working hard at something you want is not work.

You only get paid a lot of money if you make the other person believe you know the answer, but in fact, none of us do. And this is why we’re all scared because we don’t know the answer and then we go to an expert and the expert is afraid if they tell them they do not know they won’t get paid or they won’t have a client, but I think that’s not a loving relationship.
