“There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.”

“A champion is someone who gets up, even when they can’t.” – Natalie Rogers

“Adversity causes some men to break, and others to break records.”

“Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. You must be able to sustain yourself against staggering blows. There is no code of conduct to help beginners.

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” – Teddy Roosevelt
