Personal Quote:

Gratitude is a quality similar to electricity: it must be produced and discharged and used up in order to exist at all . . . Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don't bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself. See more »
