I heard this quote recently on a podcast and it stuck with me:

“We must transcend the places that hold us.” Ruben “Hurricane” Carter

This from a boxer who spent 20 years in prison before being released on a what was deemed to be a wrongful conviction — that is, he knows something about “places that hold us.”

But the quote obviously begs the question — “What are the places that hold me?” And of course, the follow up — “How do I transcend them?”
