Quotes:
Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.
True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic.
It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
