"Not getting what you want either means you don't want it enough, or you have been dealing too long with the price you have to pay."
-- Rudyard Kipling
(Ol' Rudyard is far too clever for his own good, don't you think! Guess he has to be to come up with such an inspirational poem like If.)

"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself."
