Anyone who crawls up from the gutter and makes something of themselves, despite the odds and despite others who tried to keep them down, must always be very proud of their achievements. They must never forget the struggles they went through, because they are a living example to those who wander in darkness, a staunch reminder that light is within reach if they can find the strength and determination to keep going.

A step towards what you fear is a mile towards mastering it.

Never give up.
Never give up on your hopes.
Never give up on your dreams.
Never give up on your visions.

A tree does not stop growing because the wind blew off a few of its leaves.

When they try to judge you,
remember, they themselves are judged.
When they try to condemn you,
remember, they themselves are condemned.
When they try to break you,
remember, they themselves are broken.
When they try to hurt you,
remember, they themselves are hurting.

The rainbow’s colors are hidden in the storm.

Learn from seeds; they don’t die when you throw dirt at them; they grow.
