"The time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself."
He believes that a man will never read an email from a woman that is more than 200 words long. He also tells his fans and followers to not get angry at bad circumstances in life because those circumstances are not about them. He also urges people to not waste away their lives and live them to the fullest as life is too short and one never knows when it will be gone.
