"Life is raw material. We are artisans. We can sculpt our existence into something beautiful, or debase it into ugliness. It's in our hands". "Todo lo que no acaba conmigo me hace más fuerte" "Ningún poder de la tierra podrá arrancarte lo que has vivido" "Conocimiento es poder" "All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it possible" "Whatever you are by nature, kepp to it; never desert your own line of talent. Be what nature intended you for, and you will succed; be anything else and you will be the thousand times worse than nothing"
