When I tell my son, now that I'm starting to have problems with him in school, I tell him no, you shouldn't conform yourself. Especially when people tell you that you can't, no, you should say that yes, you can. You can do it, we should alway say that yes, we can. You have to show that yes, you can. At least that's how I am, I tell him. People say that I can't do things, and that I can't.

I can, I know that I can.

And, I can.

Because we don't get anywhere knowing it all.
