Michael: If you go on my Twitter page, you will see that I am just full of quotes, everyone will tell you. One that does stick out for me is, ‘Have faith in yourself and others will have faith in you.’ I always tell myself that. Other people can believe in you, but if you don’t believe in yourself, you’re never going to get anywhere.
Carmell: Beauty is a strange gift – it’s like being born rich and getting poorer.
Adam Deacon: Just keep going or keep persevering. There are so many times where you will just want to give up. I don’t have it down to a phrase, but I’m constantly telling myself, keep going, you can’t give up. You have come too far to stop, just keep pushing.
Ashley Chin: The best of mankind are those who benefit mankind.
Jazzie: I am a champion. Inspiration is the key.
Jocelyn: I’m in love with life, so that’s what I live by. Just enjoy every day, every minute and being thankful for what you have. So fall in love with life – just don’t have sex with it [laughs].
Femi: ‘It is not the critic who counts’ – Theodore Roosevelt.
Richie C: I don’t have anything I really live by – a friend and I have set up a little company called Rich Kid Productions and the motto for that is a play on the word ‘rich’ – so it’s basically rich by name, rich by nature, rich by heart, rich in wealth, rich in knowledge. Those are elements I try to apply in my life. I don’t live by it, but those are the elements that I want to enhance – rich in mind, rich in heart, rich in pocket… all that kind of stuff. Or you could just go for something simple like, ‘Love what you do and do what you love’… That’s a tune; do you know that song? It’s by Eric Roberson… [Starts singing] ‘Love what you do and do what you love’ [laughs].
Mz Bratt: Rest is for the rest.
Richard B: Aspire to inspire before you expire.
Eddie Kadi: People only give you advice based on their limits – that is something I always remind myself. If someone gives you a piece of advice, it’s only based on what they can see, or what they feel they can do.
Ashley Chin: Know yourself –don’t ever trip up or try to conform. Do you.
