“In order to live a life truly worth living you had to have strength in the face of adversity, patience when confronted by challenge, and bravery in the face of fear. As Sandy Portman I had used arrogance in the face of fear, disdain in the face of challenge, and selfishness in the face of adversity.”

“But sometimes we have to be brave in order to dig deep and find answers. Even if we're not sure we're going to like the answers.”
