Matthew McConaughey Quotes

Man who invented the hamburger was smart; man who invented the cheeseburger was a genius.
I’m a fan of the word selfish. Self. Ish. When I say I have gotten a lot more self-ish, I mean I am less concerned with what people think of me. I’m not worried about how I’m perceived. Selfish has always gotten a bad rap. You should do for you.
Life is not fair, it never was and it is now and it won't ever be. Do not fall into the trap. The entitlement trap, of feeling like you're a victim. You are not.
It's a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates.
Life is a series of commas, not periods.
