''If a shark begins to circle your position stand your ground. Do not swim away. Do not act afraid. If the shark, hungry for a midnight snack, darts towards you, then summon up all your strength and punch him in the snout, and he will turn and swim away. There are a lot of sharks in the world. If you hope to complete the swim, you will have to deal with them. If you want to change the world, don't back down from the sharks. (...) If you want to change the world, start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone. Know that life is not fair and that you will fall often. But if you take some risks, step up when the time are the toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden, and never, ever give up.''

US Navy Admiral, William H. McRaven
