Quote of the week: Week of Nov 5, 2018

I have a fear of labels. If someone labels me, I have to respond – do I acknowledge it, reject it, deny it, live up to it, and defy it? Labels can affect your ability to be yourself. If you’re not careful, like I wasn’t when I was young, that can take a toll on you. You find yourself conforming to everyone else’s ideas of who you are.—B. D. Wong

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’—Eleanor Roosevelt
