Try not to get lost in comparing yourself to others. Discover your gifts and let them shine! Softball is amazing that way as a sport. Everyone on the field has a slightly different ability that makes them perfect for their position.
Press on! If Fortune play thee false To-day, tomorrow she'll be true; Whom now she sinks she now exalts, Taking old gifts and granting new, The wisdom of the present hour Makes up the follies past and gone; To weakness, strength succeeds, and power From frailty springs! Press on, press on!benjamin, park, sr.

Technology … is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand, and it stabs you in the back with the other.c. p. snow
Define yourself and don’t fall victim to the whims and wishes of what others want you to be. Being who you truly are is where the world finds out the talent and genius you bring to it. Don’t disappoint the world by allowing others to control the gifts you have that to help make it better.

I am a believer and a conformist. Anyone can revolt; it is more difficult silently to obey our own interior promptings, and to spend our lives finding sincere and fitting means of expression for our temperaments and our gifts — if we have any.
