What is your favorite quote?
“Calling somebody else fat won’t make you any skinnier. Calling someone stupid doesn’t make you any smarter. And ruining Regina Georgia’s life definitely didn’t make me any happier. All you can do in life is try to solve the problem in front of you.”- Cady Heron from the movie Mean Girls.
