photochop: self-reliance




There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson




There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man. True nobility is being superior to your former self. 

Ernest Hemingway

He who conquers others is strong. He who conquers himself is mighty. 

Sun Tzu

Everyday, when I look in the mirror, I ask myself how can I be better than the day before.
