What ideals do you hold dear? What quotes exemplify those ideals? What words, phrases, or colloquialisms, inspire you?
For me it's hardship, endurance, knowledge, and opportunity.
They sicken of the calm who know the storm.
Knowledge will give you power, but character respect.
Come what may, all bad fortune is to be conquered by endurance.
Fortune favors the brave.
I dream things that never were and ask "Why not?"
