    "Difficulties break some men but make others. No axe is sharp enough to cut the soul of a sinner who keeps on trying, one armed with the hope that he will rise even in the end."

    "Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again."

    ~Nelson Mandela. An Inspiration for generations to come. RIP.

  • The greatness quotient of the world has dropped significantly today.
    I don't like to reply to idiots and if you think I am referring to you, you are probably correct.
  • I am reminded of the following poem.

    Invictus

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll.
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.

    ~William Ernest Henley
    One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman.
