What is the point of going up without falling down? Of learning without failing? Of appreciating life without fearing death? What is the point of being on top without knowing how it is on the bottom? You cannot say "I have mastered life" if You do not know the hardships and bullshit life comes with. Go throw yourself in the mud. Go wet yourself. Go play dirty. Go struggle When you're done with that, go tell yourself that you can DO better, you can BE better and that you ARE better. Then only can you be on top. And that way we, the people, can salute you.
