Some motivating quotes from Welcome to Night Vale (oh no!), as best as I can remember them:
"Proverb of the day: I let my haters be my motivators. They mostly tell me I suck. This was a terrible idea."
"We all have a role we define ourselves by. Be the best person possible in that role. Be the best version of you across all the different versions of you in the multiverse. Check regularly online for rankings."
