Life is limited, that’s why it’s so precious. Since there’s a limit, we try our best to live.
– Heiji Hatori
You’ll stumble many times in the future, but when you do, each time you’ll have more strength to bounce back.
I see now that the circumstances of one’s birth are irrelevant. It is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.
