Our character is not defined in the good times, but in the hard times.

— Paul Brodie

If you’re going through hell, keep going.

— Winston Churchill

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

— Lao Tzu

Understand: you are one of a kind. Your character traits are a kind of chemical mix that will never be repeated in history. There are ideas unique to you, a specific rhythm and perspective that are your strengths, not your weaknesses. You must not be afraid of your uniqueness.

— Robert Greene
