Quote of the Day

“I know what it’s like to feel like you’re under the hammer and feel like you have nowhere to go, feel like you have no escape. You know what’s going to come now, what’s going to happen. You just feel like there is nothing you can do about it. You feel like you’re trapped under a mountain ‘cos it’s slowly squashing you and you find it hard to breathe some days. But you know what I used to say to myself all those days when I was trapped in that little concrete cell with just one blanket? Every day I used to say to myself this is how diamonds are made. Millions of years of pressure. But if you refuse to break, find a way to hang on somehow, eventually someone digs you up. Sets you free. You will be a gem. Tough, Sparkling and Beautiful.”

– Peter O’Brien as George Freeman
