When you run a part of the relay and pass on the baton, there is no sense of unfinished business in your mind. There is just the sense of having done your part to the best of your ability. That is it. The hope is to pass on the baton to somebody who will run faster and run a better marathon. -- N. R. Narayana Murthy
Don’t ever let somebody tell you…you can’t do something. You got a dream... you gotta protect it. People can’t do something themselves... they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want something go get it.
What's amazing is, if young people understood how doing well in school makes the rest of their life so much interesting, they would be more motivated. It's so far away in time that they can't appreciate what it means for their whole life.
