“There are many Beths in the world, shy and quiet, sitting in corners till needed, and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping, and the sweet, sunshiny presence vanishes, leaving silence and shadow behind.” —Louisa May Alcott, "Little Women"
Each person is unique. Be a light in this world, small but one of a kind. Be a Beth, helping others be their own and better selves, but do not let them extinguish your flame.
Let the waves of the ocean guide you, help you accomplish your dreams. But keep your feet on the ground, stay steady and don't let anyone bring you down, no matter what obstacles you may face.
Be strong but soft, kind but stubborn. Be a Beth but also a Jo, remember where you come from and where you're going. To succeed in your goals, your achievements, and accomplish your dreams you must be the most true version of yourself.
May Alcott, L. (1869). Little Women. United States: Robers Brothers.
