"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing." — Muhammad Ali

We live in a big world filled with billions of people. It's hard to believe you can make a dent. It's hard to believe anything you can do will be remembered. It's easier to say something is impossible or at least extremely unlikely. Maybe it is a little delusional to believe you can make a mark on the world in spite of possibility. Then again, nobody who made a mark gave up that hope. Everyone had periods of doubts. Everyone considers giving up sometimes, but then you just have to remember why you tried so hard in the first place. Impossible is your own fabrication or a thought you've inherited from someone else. Ultimately, you decide what's impossible, and therefore nothing has to be.
