If I could say one thing to the young people of today, it would be this: Never give up. Keep trying and keep pushing. Struggling, even if you don’t know what your goal is or why you would want to achieve it.
As you march down the street of not giving up, hold your head high and swing your elbows. People will recognize you as someone who won’t give up, and they will get out of your way. Some of them will even hide and conspire behind your back. Some will try to discourage you. They’ll say that what you’re doing is “illegal,” or a “sin,” or a violation of the health code. They may cling to your legs, causing you to drag them along, or jump onto your back, pleading, “In the name of God, please stop what you’re doing!”
But at the end what matters the most is the will to succeed and the hunger to be on top. Cause the night is the darkest just before the dawn.
Keep going. Rest assured, they’re jealous.
