“Hope is what drives winter from the soul.

Do something that makes you happy.

Education is the engine of opportunity.

Vision without focus is a mere illusion.

Don’t confuse who you are with what you do.

Without a permanent fuel source your light will go out.

Don’t allow anyone to be responsible for your failure.

The best time to start is now.”
