Invictus by Willima Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my uncoquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winces nor cried aloud.
Under the bludegeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraide.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.


Quotes by Jordan Peterson

Sometimes, when people have a low opinion of their worth -  or,
perhaps, when they refuse responsibility for their lives - they choose a
new acquaintance, of precisely the type who proved troublesome in the
past. Such people don't believe that they deserve any better - so they
don't go looking for it. Or, perhaps, they don't want the trouble of

Freud called this a "repetition compulsion." He thought of it as
an unconcious drive to repeat the horros of the past - sometimes,
perhaps, to formulate those horrors more precisely, sometimes to
attempt more active mastery and sometiems, perhaps, because no
alternatives beckon. People create their words with the tools they have
directly at hand. Faulty tools produce faulty results. Repeated use of the
same faulty tools produces the same faulty resutls.

It is in this manner that those who fail to learn from the past doom
themselves to repeat it. It's partly fate. It's partly inability.
It's partly ... unwillingness to learn?
Refusal to learn? Motivated refusal to learn?


Quotes from "Make Your Bed" by William H. Mcraven
Former Navy Seal

If you want to change your life or maybe the world, start each day with
a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone.
Know that life is not fair and you will fail often. But if you take some
risks, Step up when the times are toughest, Face the bullies and Lift up
the downtrodden and Never give up. If you do these things, then the next
generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better
than the one we have today and what started here will
change the world for the better.

Life is full of difficult times, but someone out there always has it worse
than you do. If you feel your day with pity, sorrowful for the way you've
been treated, blaming your circumstances or someone or something else,
then life will be long and hard. If on the other hand, you refuse to give
up on your dreams, stand tall and strong against the odds, then life
will be what you make of it and you can make it great.
Never give up!

You must dare greatly. Life is a struggle and the potential for failure
is ever present, but those who live in fear of failure or hardships or
embarassment will never achieve their potential. Without pushing your
limits or daring greatly, you'll never know
what is truly possible in your life.
