"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate and if they can learn to hate they can be taught to love for love comes more naturally to the human heart than it’s opposite. What counts in life is not the mere fact we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead. Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world. For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time you fall." -Nelson Mandela 7/18/18-12/05/13

"Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.”
-Bruce Lee (at The lab Anti-Mall)
