Man I got so many regrets. The biggest is that Eminem gave me so many demos — six different times he approached me, and I didn't sign him. Shame on me.
Dogs have boundless enthusiasm but no sense of shame. I should have a dog as a life coach.

Some animals are cunning and evil-disposed, as the fox; others, as the dog, are fierce, friendly, and fawning. Some are gentle and easily tamed, as the elephant; some are susceptible of shame, and watchful, as the goose. Some are jealous and fond of ornament, as the peacock.
Does not the gratitude of the dog put to shame any man who is ungrateful to his benefactors?

Shame — quotes and aphorisms
Once my heart was captured, reason was shown the door, deliberately and with a sort of frantic joy. I accepted everything, I believed everything, without struggle, without suffering, without regret, without false shame. How can one blush for what one adores?

The Black skin is not a badge of shame, but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness.
People talk about physical fitness, but mental health is equally important. I see people suffering, and their families feel a sense of shame about it, which doesn't help. One needs support and understanding. I am now working on an initiative to create awareness about anxiety and depression and help people.
