“I think that even with this whole thing of doing all this, all this kind of stuff, I’ve kind of settled into that mindset of really earning my way in, no matter what it is. And I think I’m comfortable going that route.” ~Sam LaCrosse

“It was like 95 degrees out with Ohio humidity, so it was probably over a hundred degrees. I did that for 13 hours, and I got a cold shower and a can of Sprite and a thanks. And that was it.” ~Sam LaCrosse 

“It’s about persuasion. It’s not about everything else. So if we just go and we just try to drop nukes on one another left and right and all these conversations without even considering their side of the argument. I think that’s a very, very big mistake.” ~Sam LaCrosse

“It really puts a very unfair burden on young women in particular, but women in general, because you know, one, you objectify them, and two, you treat them as objects.” ~Sam LaCrosse
