"It must be borne in mind that the tragedy in life doesn’t lie in not reaching your 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 not to dream…"
-Dr. Benjamin E. Mays
"Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true."
-Leon J. Suenes
