“A man is not finished when he’s defeated, he’s finished when he quits.” – Richard M. Nixon
This wonderful quote follows the theme that if you give up you are done for. When we apply ourselves and pursue our goals and dreams we can achieve them. In the midst of my depression this quote came my way and I realized that I could beat the feelings that were getting me down. I could overcome the troubles I was facing. I have applied this quote to my life and I try to live it to the best of my ability. Thomas Edison’s greatest works came after his photography lab burned to the ground, he was 68 years old.
