I started my life with a single absolute: that the world was mine to shape in the image of my highest values and never to be given up to a lesser standard, no matter how long or hard the struggle.
My own life has been much more than a fairy tale. I’ve had my share of difficult moments, but whatever difficulties I’ve gone through, I’ve always gotten the prize at the end.

If you want to shine like sun first you have to burn like it.
Those who want to live, let them fight, and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.

The storms in life gotta make you stronger, the tougher it gets the more positive you gotta be.
The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.
There is scarcely any passion without struggle.
Those who suffer most cry out the least.
The struggle alone pleases us, not the victory.
Struggle teaches you the best way to hustle to progress.
Where there is no struggle there is no strength.
