Don't do something to prove someone else wrong. Do it to prove yourself right.

If you can go down so low, you will be able to rise higher than you can concieve, and you will know holy joy, a companionship almost like that of a heavenly company of angels.
John Steinbeck, East of Eden
Sometimes a kind of glory lights up the mind of a man. It happens to nearly everyone. You can feel it growing or preparing like a fuse burning towards dynamite. It is a feeling in the stomach, a delight of the nerves, of the forearms. The skin tastes like air, and every deep drawn breath is sweet. Its beginning has the pleasure of a great stretching yawn; it flashes in your brain and the whole world glows outside your eyes. A man may have lived all his life in the gray, and the land and the trees of him dark and somber. The events, even important ones, may have trooped by faceless and pale. And then-the glory-so that a cricket songsweetens his ears, the smell of the earth rises chanting to his nose, and dappling light under a tree blesses his eyes. Then a man pours outward, a torrent of him, and yet he is not diminished. And I guess a man's importance in the world can be measured by the quality and the number of his glories. It is a lonely thing but it relates to us in the world. It is the mother of all creativness, and it sets each man separate from all other men.
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Shogun
The ink of the learned is as precious as the blood of the martyr. For one drop of ink may make millions think.
