"For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.
This is not your destruction.
This is your birth."
"Despite the well-publicized payoffs of unscrupulous people in Wall St, big business, and government, the overwhelming reality is that good people will find success more readily because they attract other good people. And who knows, you may just meet someone who can help shine a light in a direction you never expected and that will lead you down the path to your dreams. Until then: work hard, meet good people, take risks, have fun, be patient, and don’t ever turn down an opportunity to improve yourself. You might be surprised at the result."
