“You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.” – J.M. Barrie, creator of Peter Pan

“He who would accomplish little need sacrifice little; he who would achieve much must sacrifice much. He who would attain highly must sacrifice greatly.” – James Allen, in As a Man Thinketh

How many people in that audience are hearing that for the first time?

How many young girls had never been told they are beautiful? How many young men are constantly reminded of their mistakes, of their worthlessness, of hell?
