My true identity is defined not by what I have (or not), but by what I choose to do with what I have (or not).
In the most profound sense, I am real only to the degree that I am a cause, not a mere effect. In the most profound sense, I am nothing until I make something of myself.
It takes uncommon wisdom to recognize and embrace such self-cultivation as one of the essential, never-ending, and monumental challenges of existence… whose achievement is among the most admirable and joyous of human accomplishments.
