Quotes by Faith Jegede
“The pursuit of normality is the ultimate sacrifice of potential.”
“The chance for greatness, for progress and for change dies the moment we try to be like someone else.”
“The fact that we are different doesn’t mean that one of us is wrong — it just means that there’s a different kind of right.”
