“I wanted to teach myself some life lessons at the age of 60 and one of them was that you don’t give up.”
Diana Nyad

“Never, ever give up. You're never too old to chase your dreams. It looks like a solitary sport, but really a team effort”
Diana Nyad

“I failed and faltered many times, but I can look back without regret because I was never burdened with the paralysis of fear and inaction.”
Diana Nyad, Find a Way
