Some inspirational quotes I need right now!

“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”
H. Jackson Brown Jr.
“I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”
Am I just valuable if I’m successful?
Am I worth nothing if I fail at everything?

“If people refuse to look at you in a new light
and they can only see you for what you were,
only see you for the mistakes you’ve made,
if they don’t realize that you are not your mistakes,
then they have to go.”
― Steve Maraboli
