Do you hope be a great scientist or doctor?
Remember to look into a patient's eyes for the inspiration to try again.
An artist or writer?
It is what will give your work a heart.
It will connect you with your soul.
For all of those who fear being 'used' in this world, know that it is better to be used a little, than to be totally worthless.
