Don’t get discouraged if it seems too hard or confusing at times. Everything in life that’s worthwhile has moments like that. The trick is to not give up, not submit to the inner voices that tell you you’re not good enough, to just work at it a little more until you finally “get it” – the reward is worth the effort. Math is about everything – it’s in everything, so learning mathematics is sort of like learning the secrets to how the world works. With math, you can do anything.
-Edwin Herman


Don’t waste time being bitter about things that could have been, instead, find what is good about the things that are.
