Here are a couple of quotes I like, which relate to your discussion above
concerning the artificial limitations people often place on themselves :
“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven..”
- John Milton, Paradise Lost
"Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they're yours"
- Richard Bach, Illusions
