Don’t look where you fall, but where you slipped. Don’t set sail on someone else’s star. Everybody has been young before, but not everybody has been old before. He who learns, teaches. However long the night, the dawn will break. If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.

If you want to go quickly, go alone. It takes a village to raise a child. Only a fool tests the depth of the water with both feet. Return to old watering holes for more than water; friends and dreams are there to meet you. Smooth seas do not make skilful sailors. The one who asks questions doesn’t lose his way.
