When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.

The heart of the difference is not ability or even talent, but desire

The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

Told you I smiled at the finish!

"The marvelous richness of human experience would lose something of rewarding joy if
there were no limitations to overcome. The hilltop hour would not be half so
wonderful if there were no valleys to traverse."

– Helen Keller

  8. That Keller quote was kind of what I was trying to say to you in my last comment. She said it way better than I did, though.
