Always be yourself
"That's right I am a book kisser"
Follow your dreams
Arnold left the Rez to go to reardan even though his friends and family didn't want him to and it ended up working out in his favor
Don't let your past define your future Arnold's past shows poverty and alcoholism but he was able to escape and become a star athlete at a rich school.
Do what's best for you "If you stay on the Rez Mr. P said, it's going to kill you"
If you don't like something, change it. You are in control. "My parents came from poor people who came from poor people who came from poor people"
Don't try to fit in, real friends will accept the real you. "No, I felt like a magician slicing myself in half, with Junior living on the north side of the Spokane River and Arnold living on the south."
