A problem is a chance for you to do your best.
Difficult roads always lead to beautiful destinations.
You measure the size of the accomplishment by the obstacles you had to overcome to reach your goals.
Booker T. Washington
The difference between a stumbling block and a stepping stone is how high you raise your foot.
I judge you unfortunate because you have never lived through misfortune. You have passed through life without an oponent – no one can ever know what you are capable of, not even you.
You act like mortals in all that you fear, and like immortals in all that you desire.
You’ll face changes your entire life. When you encounter one that seems huge, remind yourself of all other challenges you conquered to get here. You faced mountains before – you’ll learn how to overcome this one as well.
Fear tends to come from ignorance. Once I knew what the problem was, it was just a problem, nothing to fear.
The truth is that the world is full of dragons, and none of us are as powerful or cool as we’d like to be. And that sucks. But when you’re confronted with that fact, you can either crawl into a hole and quit, or you can get out there, take off your shoes, and Bilbo it up.
You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way.
