  It is not the opportunities
  that you are given that
  define you, so much as
  it is what you make of
  those opportunities.                                                                     Do what you love to do and love doing it. Always live

  and engineer of your own                                                                 important as the end goal. Do everything with passion
  success.                                                                                 and live simply.
