I feel really humbled and really grateful to have the opportunities that I've had over the past couple of years to work with some amazing people. I think, at this point, I just want to put my head down and grind and do honest work.
I can't control what goes on; that's not my responsibility. My responsibility is to go play football. ... I take it as a low blow. I had to work. It wasn't handed to me, I had to get out and grind. It's a golden opportunity [to prove people wrong].

I tell inmates all the time, 'Don't complain about your grind. Do your time.'

Fire Yourself. Outsource some of your life. Because you know what won't be cute on a tombstone? 'Her grind was impeccable, and she did it all by herself.'
The thing I don't miss is waking up in the morning, hurting, the grind of the game.
If every woman who's had an abortion took tomorrow off in protest, America would grind to a halt. And that would be symbolic: because women grind to a halt if they are not in control of their fertility.
When you're in the day-to-day grind, it just seems like it's another step along the way. But I find joy in the actual process, the journey, the work. It's not the end. It's not the end event.
Cal Ripken, Jr.
Grief is a terrible, painful place. You can't grind away on grief in a solid way and say, 'I'm going to work on this until it's over' because it will be with you for the rest of your life, whatever you do. So, you deal with it and move on.
The mill cannot grind with the water that is past.
