This was my most inspirational quote I looked up to when I was at high school. It somehow always powered me to achieve my set targets especially when I have work at night. Absolutely Forever Relevant.

When we migrated to the US MAY 11, 2019
When my daughter Migrated to the US to go to college, I did this quotation in Calligraphy and pinned it to her bedside wall. I myself remember this all the time when I am painting especially at nights.

My father would often quote this poem to us as children .He even had a display plaque done at our home .I can still recite this after 40 odd decades

I love this poem, I learnt it in middle school back in my Caribbean Island, and it has been one of the sources of my accomplishment.
