"When my father left us, my mother went back to school immediately. She went to school in the day while we were at school and she worked at night. She worked very hard to never let someone define her as a victim or a failure."

 "You never let someone define who you are. Only you define who you are."

"I learned that growth and comfort never coexist. It’s the same for people, countries and companies. Ask yourself when you learn the most? I guarantee it’s when you felt at risk."
