--Newell D. Hillis
They fail, and they alone, who have not striven.
--Thomas Bailey Aldrich

There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something.
--Henry Ford

--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Who aims at excellence will be above mediocrity; who aims at mediocrity will be far short of it.

Where beams of imagination play,
The memory's soft figures melt away.
--Alexander Pope
Believe that you have it, and you have it.
--Latin Proverb
The imagination is the secret and marrow of civilization.
--Henry Ward Beecher
Imagine every day to be the last of a life surrounded with hopes, cares, anger, and fear. The hours that come unexpectedly will be so much more the grateful.
