Only you get to decide when you quit.

“I have not failed, I’ve just found 10,000 ways that will not work.”  Thomas Edison couldn’t hold a job when he was young, and no one thought he would amount much to anything. Thomas Edison never made it as an inventor… until he did. Only you get to decide when you quit. No well intended friend, no parent who’s only trying to protect you, and no teacher, who’s supposed to bring out the best in you, can make you turn your back on something you’re passionate about. Because a teacher who brings you to failure, who wants you to quit, who hasn’t taught you anything, is… no teacher at all.
