Grace Lichtenstein

  • Adventure can be an end in itself. Self-discovery is the secret ingredient that fuels daring.

  • Power-lifting as a competitive sport is about as interesting for spectators as watching cows chew their cud.

  • Your opponent, in the end, is never really the player on the other side of the net, or the swimmer in the next lane, or the team on the other side of the field, or even the bar you must high-jump. Your opponent is yourself, your negative internal voices, your level of determination.
