15. “Your calling isn’t something that somebody can tell you about. It’s what you feel. It is the thing that gives you juice. The thing that you are supposed to do. And nobody can tell you what that is. You know it inside yourself.”


16. “Everything happens for a reason, even when we are not wise enough to see it. When there is no struggle, there is no strength.”


17. “Turn your wounds into wisdom.”


18. “Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.”
