“The Gem Can’t Be Polished Without Friction, Nor Man Perfected Without Trials
The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are you own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.
It’s lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believe in myself.
Challenges make life interesting, however, overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
A river cuts through rock, not because of its power, but because of its persistence.
The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.
Don’t go through life, grow through life.
