"There are going to be days when you won't have the energy or drive to get out of bed. There are going to be days when you're going to want to give up - give up on love, life, and school. The thing is, you're not allowed to give up. You were given a life and you are supposed to live it. The truth is the seventy or eighty years that you're given isn't long enough to do the things you're supposed to do. Sure, you're gonna hit a few bumps along the way, but you've got to pick yourself up and move on. Life is unpredictable and things might not always work out the way you want them to, but that's no reason to give up. You're here for a reason and someday when you're not expecting it, you're going to discover your reason for being here. And when that does happen, your life will never be the same."
