"You can be excellent in every way.
You can be first class.
There is no need for you to be a scrub.
Do not feel sorry for yourself.
Do not dwell on unkind things others may say about you.
Polish and refine whatever talents the Lord has given you.
Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart.
Love life and look for its opportunities."
- Gordon B. Hinckley
