The End “ You must do the thing you think you cannot do” “ It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself” “ I think that somehow, we learn who we really are and then live with that decision” “ Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself” “ Justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both” “ The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience” -Eleanor Roosevelt
