If you are not afraid to face the music, you may someday lead the band. If you do not do it excellently, do not do it at all. Because if it is not excellent, it will not be profitable or fun, and if you are not in business for fun or profit, what the hell are you doing there? When one door closes another opens. Expect that new door to reveal even greater wonders and glories and surprises. Feel yourself grow with every experience. And look for the reason for it Believing is one thing, doing another. Many talk like the sea but their lives are stagnant marshes. Others raise their heads above the mountain tops, while their souls cling to the dark walls of caves Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no ones definition of your life, but define yourself.
To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing. Men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better off than those who try to do nothing and succeed. One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man. Do not compromise yourself. You are all you have got. I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do.
