All thoughts are original unless quoted.
Watch out for the sharks. Don’t be careless. Don’t be over confident. Being bold for ego’s sake only leads to trouble.
“Don’t let the words trump the truth.” -Ted Rooney
Find a reason to bless someone.
How about this one: it’s not about you.
Whatever we believe, we can manifest. The important word here is “we.”
Be intensely present, observing everything. This is how you remember.
Some of my best thoughts, I never wrote down. I couldn’t figure out how to make them short enough to write down. I couldn’t figure out how to put them into words so others would understand.
You have to want to live more than you want to sleep.
The only people I care about being cool to are 7-year-olds.
Someone to create a universe with.
I’m an angry, gay, Italian, hair dresser. Ok then, lol.
How can I be happy if my family is not happy? What if my family is the world?
Advising someone how to do it, is not the same as doing it yourself. Don’t confuse the two, and don’t think because you can do one, you can do the other.
Becoming an amazing actor and never making it is as praise worthy as making blockbusters.
Looking for amazing. Other people say, “Adam, that’s good enough.” But how could I ever be untrue to myself?
We won’t be here forever.
I’m a true villain. The pug proves it.
Find what makes you happy, or learn to be happy with what you have?
Not a lot slips by me, but I don’t always want to believe what I see.
It is rules from society that say what can and can’t be done, but we don’t have to follow them. We get to make our own rules in this world.
Business makes a way or it disappears. That’s all that matters.
Yah I feel you. Life is weird, isn’t it? It’s like we get caught up and go on side life tangents, and then we find ourselves 5 or 10 years down the road and wonder if that was really what we wanted. We have to be smarter than nostalgia and not indulge it. Where we are today is because we made great choices for things we loved. Even with some surprises, which clearly happen, and some mistakes, which also happen, I don’t think we can really be anywhere else than where we are.

“Northmen Guild’s Code of Ethics”
Northmen guild’s code of ethics
Love what you do
Do what you love
Begin where you are
Use what you have
Do what you can
Honour the elders
Teach the young
Protect and love your family
Keep your craft and your skills strong
Learn from your own mistakes, not only from others
Look for the log in your own eye –
not the splinter in your brothers
Be loyal to your friends
Voice your opinion
Stand your ground
Trust your brothers
Work hard, stay humble
Focus on the detail
Wake up early
Temper your body
Live in nature
Walk in the woods
Climb the mountains
Find time to be alone
Hunt when you need food
Rest when you can
Work when you must
Always leave your mark
Take charge when others show weakness
Have more, spend less
More time, less convenience
Craft, not business
Value, not price
Quality, not quantity
To create, not to produce
Hands, not machines
Take more risks.
