The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight. But they, while their companions slept were toiling upwards in the night

— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to become the best of which you are capable

— Coach John Wooden

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloth, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half light, I would spread the cloths under your feet; But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

— W.B. Yeats

As Sir Ken Robinson said in his TED talk – Bring on the Learning Revolution, “every day, our children spread their dreams under our feet. We must tread softly, for we tread on their dreams.”
