"It's never too late to be what you might of been." - George Elliot

This quote means to me that, it doesn't matter if you make a mistake or take the wrong path, because you can always fix it. The person is just saying that you can be anything, do anything , and fix anything. Your life is in your hands so take it as far as you can. We are reading The One And Only Ivan in class. We had a small discussion about why we think the author put the quote in the book.  I think that the author put  this quote at the beginning of the book because it is how Ivan is going to live. Ivan didn't want his life to be the way it is. He didn't ask to be caged and a part of some cheap circus act. He wanted a family to protect but he had never been given that chance to be a real gorilla. I think that after the baby elephant arrives he will escape with her to go to the wild. He will end up being everything he could have been. The quote will kind of represent him. In the end the quote means, it's never too late to follow your dreams and reach your goals. Your life is what you make of it and it's never too late for you to succeed.
