    A lot of good quotes…here’s my personal favorite, from E.O. Wilson, that inspires me every day–“You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give.”
