Of course, being the mechanic for Halloween, Chip pulled over to ask the man if he needed any assistance. “Excuse me sir,” Chip asked, “do you need any help getting home tonight?” The man replied, “I got a busted radiator. This old thing isn’t going anywhere.” “Is there anything we can do to help? Would you like a ride home?” Zander asked. “No, I think I should be okay. I called my wife, and she said she’s about…

Through Invictus by William Ernest Henley and If by Rudyard Kipling, it is shown that “if you can keep your head”, “yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it”. Both texts insinuate that success comes from commitment and a true sense…
