Favorite quote: “A vigorous purpose makes much out of little. If you will, you can rise. No power in society, no hardship in your condition, can depress you, keep you down in knowledge, power, virtue, influence, but by your own consent. You are today and will be tomorrow by what you consent to be.”
The most important advice I could give a teenager is: Life’s not fair. No one owes you anything. Most people aren’t for you or against you, they’re just thinking about themselves. No man is free who is not master of himself – Epititus
