what you dislike, and rejoice at what brings you nothing but
I speak truth, not so much as I would, but as much as I dare;
and I dare a little the more, as I grow older.
Michel de Montaigne
The greatest explorer on this earth never takes voyages as long
as those of the man who descends to the depth of his heart.
The hardest battle you're ever going to fight is the battle
to be just you.
The life of every man is a diary in which he means to write
one story, and writes another.
James Matthew Barrie
The most exhausting thing in life is being insincere.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
The only person you should ever compete with is yourself. You
can't hope for a fairer match.

The pen that writes your life story must be held in your own

You must live your life from beginning to end: No one else can
do it for you.
