Quote
"No man is more unhappy than he who never faces adversity, for he is not permitted to prove himself." - Seneca

"The greatest thing a man can possibly do in this world is to make the most possible out of the stuff that has been given to him. This is success, and there is no other. I t is not a question of what someone else can do or become which every youth should ask himself, but what can I do? How can I develop myself into the grandest possible manhood?" - Orison Sweet Marden
