“If you have a problem with someone you have to go after them, and it’s not necessarily to teach that person a lesson, it’s to teach all the people that are watching a lesson that you don’t take crap, and if you do take crap, you’re just not going to do well” – Donald Trump

Whether your glass is half empty or half full, there is always room

My most favorite quote is simple and powerful: “Never Give Up”. Whatever the troubles, they are just passing clouds. Patience always wins over power, so it’s important to hang in there and work toward bringing the better day closer. After all, what’s the point if you don’t fight with everything you’ve got?
