A daily bit of Emerson........

"There is a time in every man's education when he arrives
at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is
suicide; that he must take himself for better, or worse, as
his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no
kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his
toil bestowed on that plat of ground which is given to him
to till."
