Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.
Put your pain in a box — lock it down; Real men, made up of boxes — chambers of loss and triumph of hurt and hope and love. No one is stronger or more dangerous than he who can harness his emotions — his past. Use it as fuel, as ammunition as ink to write the most important letter of your life.
