"It takes more strength to relate to others than to challenge them more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, and more intelligence know and accept when you are are wrong. Each and every one of us was born with an abundance of qualities and potential, but without courage, will, and understanding, we cannot practice any virtue with consistency. You are stronger than you may believe yourself to be, and smarter than you may think. For life's challenges are not created to paralyze you, they are gifts to help you in your self discovery." - Duane McLaughlin
