Man can be defeated but not destroyed.

Who are you?

You are your thoughts. You are your desires. You are your actions. You are the best that you can bring yourself to be. You are the worst that you will permit yourself to be.

You are at once an incredible opportunity and an awesome responsibility. You hold a life in your hands -- your own -- and the power to fill that life with joy or despair, wealth or poverty, love or hatred, value or insignificance.

There is no one else who can do what you do. It is your lifetime job to be you. That job can bring rich rewards. It’s a great job when you take it and run with it. No one can do it for you.

What do you truly desire to experience? Who do you really want to be? How can you make a difference? What can you create? The possibilities are endless. Keep your own special light shining and your world will be a much brighter place.

— Ralph Marston
