« Never let fear get in your way! Do not be afraid to continue even when so-called “experts” say it’s impossible. Do not be afraid to be alone, to be different, to deceive yourself, to do and recognize your mistakes, because only those who dare to fail greatly can accomplish great things.»
Margaret Hamilton
