Michael Phelps Made Me Cry (Good Tears)

Don’t tell me what’s wrong with the Olympics. Let me tell you what’s right with them.

In a world rife with failure and bitter compromise, they’re dedicated to dreaming and to the proposition that limits are entirely negotiable, because they reflect only what has been done to date and not what’s doable in time.

Phelps has is name written in gold in the history of sports. He has done it after he went to dark places when he pleaded guilty for DUI a couple of years back. 

What I did was wrong, and I made a bad mistake. I’m looking forward to having a much brighter future than I had in the past.

Kudos to you man. You had it all, lose it and had the strength to get it back. 

Last week, Joe Biden used this quote during his speech

The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places .
