“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation — either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.”

And if you’ve never actually listened or watched a speech of his, I highly recommend you do so. Be prepared to be greatly inspired (and possibly get the chills).
