Michael J. Fox
My view of life is colored by humor and looking at the best in any situation.
When I was younger, I was always described as happy-go-lucky.
The least amount of judging we can do, the better off we are.
There's always failure. And there's always disappointment. And there's always loss. But the secret is learning from the loss, and realizing that none of those holes are vacuums.
The more I expect, the more unhappy I am going to be. The more I accept, the more serene I am.
Acceptance doesn't mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is and that there's got to be a way through it.
My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.
Family is not an important thing. It's everything.
