The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

When you're good at something, you'll tell everyone. When you're great at something, they'll tell you.
- Walter Payton
“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.”

“This planet has – or rather had – a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time.

- Douglas Adams
