"Life is a do-it-yourself project. You can't hire anyone to do it for you. When you don't have the tools you need, it’s up to you to get them. When you don’t have the skills you need, it’s up to you to learn them. When you encounter obstacles, it’s up to you to overcome them. And when you need help, it’s up to you to ask for it. If you do these things, and if you celebrate both your own skills and the skills of others, then your life will be an authentic part of the world-wide do-it-ourselves project called civilization."
