This is your life, fight for it.
The book is a wonderful read so far. I am reading the truths that I think I need to hear from the variety of topics that are covered in 101 Simple Truths for a Better Life by Humble the Poet. Each of them is short, sweet, and impactful.

The only unique contribution that we will ever make in this world will be born of our creativity.
