“I used to be ashamed by the way that I grew up. I tried to lie my way through better times,
but when you think that honesty and truth is really your best weapon you embrace it and put it behind you.
In the end, it drives you and motivates you to do good work.
No one should be ashamed about where they come from
as long as you desire to be a compassionate and decent person.”

“What makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning?
What puts a smile on your face, the kind you can’t wipe off if you tried?
