C.G. Jung

I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.

The moment you feel you have to prove your worth to someone is the moment to absolutely and utterly walk away.

Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.
