Favorite Quotes From Usher

It takes dedication to achieve success. It’s possible to not get to where you want or to do what you want, but you can be there. You have to be willing and able to see the big picture, to make it happen.

When you are trying to find your purpose in life, breaking up is natural. It won’t work if you are with someone who doesn’t move in the same direction as you and at the same place.
