If you don’t like the road you’re walking, start paving another one.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
Originality is unexplored territory. You get there by carrying a canoe – you can’t take a taxi.
To me, defeat in anything is merely temporary. Defeat simply tells me that something is wrong in my doing; it is a path leading to success and truth.
