J.K. Rowling. When she started writing Harry Potter she was a single mom living in poverty and struggling with depression. She wound up being the first person to become a billionaire writing children's books. If that's not inspiring, I don't know what is.
Stella valued the memories of her childhood. "You could try remembering a good day. That's what I do when I can't sleep" "There's a difference between 'can't remember' and 'wont remember'." "Memories are precious, they help tell us who we are."- page 53
