harvey specter quote in the sky

I’m a huge Suits fan, so this one was a lot of fun to write.

What always strikes me about Harvey is the aura of invincibility around him. No matter how screwed up the situation, he always finds the right move at the right time to turn the odds in his favor.

(And yes, I know it’s a TV show)

But nonetheless, there’s still lessons to be learned from the way that Harvey operates. Perhaps one of the most important ones is this : never stop fighting, no matter how hopeless your situation seems.

Hopefully these quotes inspire that same spirit within you today!
