"The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching our 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 to not dream. 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 the mistake."
-Helmut Schmidt"Many persons have the wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose." - Helen Keller
"Many people fail in life, not for lack of ability or brains or even courage but simply because they have never organized their energies around a goal." -Elbert Hubbard
