Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.
There is but one cause of human failure. And that is man's lack of faith in his true Self.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
