How to be happy with yourself

"Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life."

That quote came from Golda Meir, who was born Golda Mabovich on May 3, 1898 in Kiev, Russian Empire (now the Ukraine).  She moved to the US around 1906, after her father had saved enough money working to bring his family there.  

She was a leader early in life, organizing a fundraiser to pay for her classmates' textbooks, and eventually graduating valedictorian of her class.
