For your consideration
  • "It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of
    life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The
    tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn't
    a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it
    is a calamity not to dream. It is not a disaster
    to be unable to capture your ideal, but it is a
    disaster to have no ideal to capture. It is not a
    disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a
    disgrace to have no stars to reach for. Not
    failure, but low aim is a sin"
  • --Benjamin E. Mays
