Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
— Thomas Jefferson

My past has not defined me, destroyed me, deterred me, or defeated me; it has only strengthened me.
Steve Maraboli defines quote

At any given point you can release your greatest self. Don’t let anyone hold you back. Don’t let anyone dilute you. Don’t be peer pressured into being less than you are. People willing to dilute themselves for the sake of others is one of the great tragedies of our time. Stop letting others define and set the pace for your life. Get out there and be your best. Do your best. Live your best. Make every day count and you’ll see how exponentially more exciting, thrilling, successful, happy and full your life will be.
— Steve Maraboli

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life, but define yourself.
— Harvey Fierstein

If I could define enlightenment briefly I would say it is the quiet acceptance of what is.
— defines quotation by Wayne Dyer
