Sarah So, I recently saw a quote on here by F. Scott Fitzgerald,

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”

... and thought that this did not sound quite like him. So I did some sleuthing, reading his short story, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" from which this quote supposedly hails, yet I was unable to find it. However, after further sleuthing, I found this article that affirmed my suspicion.

Hopefully this is the correct place to submit this and it can get sorted out.

Fixed.
