Today's lesson:

No one can define who you are except you.

Previously inscribed:

  • Sometimes there simply aren't any answers, just questions.

  • There are some things that can't be fixed.

  • When you're dusting yourself off and cursing your scraped hands and bloody nose because you've fallen down again, what the people around you see is just you getting back up for the Nth time. Sometimes a little distance allows room for compassion and clarity.

  • Nobody needs seven pairs of Crusader Rabbit ears. Particularly not all at once.

  • Counterintuitive as it may seem, when one is broke, not only is it permissible to still spend money on small pleasures, sometimes it is essential.

  • Sometimes waiting is the hardest possible thing to do. Sometimes waiting is the only thing you can do.

  • There is no shame in failing where it is impossible to succeed.

  • There are some situations in which no human could possibly succeed, no matter how much determination or willpower one possesses. Not being superhuman is not a character flaw.

  • Sometimes correctly identifying the problem is enough for a solution to present itself. Sometimes it is not.

  • The true measure of a person is not in how one deals with success, but how one deals with failure.

  • Life is rarely so obliging as to provide a clear villain.
