  • What we GO THROUGH is how we GET TO.
  • We are not defined by WHAT WE OVERCOME, but by WHAT WE CHOOSE TO BECOME.
  • You don't always choose what happens to you, but you ALWAYS choose how you respond to what happens to you.
  • Sometimes hope is all you need when hope is all you've got.
  • Men? Fathers? Husbands? It's manly to be vulnerable. It really is.
