“Human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but … life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.”
― Gabriel García Márquez
Beautifully written, but then again that’s expected. I love this quote because it says something about each of us as individuals. We grow and change so much even after we mature. It is self-reliance and confidence in our talents that continually allow us to “give birth” to ourselves. We are never stagnant in our lives. We are always growing and changing, and that is the beauty of life. It is an obligation, as Garcia-Marquez states, that I happily take to heart.
