Those who brew their own beer say that it’s better than something that has been bought from the store.

Brazilian football players who grow up in the favelas have a far greater record than those from expensive academies.

Those who make their own fortune seem to do more with it than those who just inherited a lot of money.

If you want a sense of pride and accomplishment, you won’t get it handed to you on a platter.

You have to earn it.

You have to work for it.

You have to master your craft after years of persistence.

Then, and only then, you can sit down and take a metaphorical (or literal) swig of the home brew that you’ve created.
