Find life experiences and swallow them whole. Travel. Meet many people. Go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys. Try everything. Exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life. —Lawrence K. Fish
Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road. —Dag Hammarskjold
