" It must be borne in the mind that the tragedy of life does not lie in not reaching your goal; the tragedy is in not having a goal to reach. Not a calamity to die without dreams not fulfilled but a calamity not to dream. Not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideal; it is a disaster not to have an ideal to capture. Not a disgrace not to reach the stars but a disgrace to have no stars to reach. Not failure but low aim is sin."
