Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. ~Steve Jobs
You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. ~Christopher Columbus
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
