"It's what's inside that's important. The soul. And my soul is very human." By: alyssa Heuer

This quote means to not let someone control your life. If you don't stick up for yourself and are a follower instead of a leader, someone will lead you into wrong direction and you could make bad decisions in life. If you allow it, people will steer your life onto a path or road that may be hard to get off of.
"It's like having a passenger into car who suddenly grabs the steering wheel and turns you down a side street" (84).
Most people expect everyone to listen to them when they are going through something but once someone else needs someone to talk to or someone to be there for them, they aren't there and aren't willing to listen. Allowing people to talk to you as you listen can make you a good person in their eyes.
Here's why I'm a good person. Because I listen" (84).
With society today, some people think it's hard to keep things to yourself. Many people do not have a filter and say whatever is on their mind. Because of that, some people jump to the conclusion that the person didn't mean what they said. This could be good because you may have said something bad that you didn't mean to say but it could also be bad because people aren't taking you seriously or believing you.
"She may have said it, but she couldn't have meant it" (158).
This quote shows to be proud of yourself despite what everyone else thinks and expects from you. You may not be the next Lance Armstrong, but you don't need to be. Just because you aren't famous or popular doesn't mean that you aren't doing something right in life and aren't achieving great things.
"They're all disappointed. Everyone wants me to be the next Lance Armstrong" (138).
This quote could be important to many different situations. If others around you aren't where you are, don't let them hold you back. Always continue to push for your personal best and do what is important for you. Never give up on your dreams and never doubt yourself.
"Not all dogs return as men, they say; only those who are ready. I am ready." (82).
