They deem me mad because I will not sell my days for gold; and I deem them mad because they think my days have a price.

Get up, stand up, Stand up for your rights. Get up, stand up, Don't give up the fight.

The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.

When I'm good, I'm very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better.
For me, I'm focused on what I want to do. I know what I need to do to be a champion, so I'm working on it.
