"If I go through my career, there's a lot of disappointments; there's a lot of things that didn't go right. But those aren't the things that make you. It's how you bounce back, and where you move on from there—and what you learn from those things. It's kind of 'the river flows'.... You have to make choices on where your life goes, but you never stop flowing. You never stop riding the river.... You kind of keep pushing forward, because you're going to have disappointments, you're going to have problems in your life, you're going to have different things that go wrong, but that's not what's going to define you. What's going to define you is how you recover from those things and how you move on." --David Tepper
