Henry Rollins’ advice on discipline, self-reliance, and overcoming obstacles

“You will encounter people who never have to pay in full. They get to wreck the room and never have to clean it. They can get all the way through high school and never understand where a dollar comes from, because they just get it given to them. You cannot let these people make you feel that you have in any way been dwarfed or outclassed. You must really go for your own and realize how short life is. You got what you got, so you’ve got to make the most of it. You really can’t spend a whole lot of time worrying about his.”

Henry then advises the youth to take a heroic stance in these turbulent times.
