Louisa May Alcott:
I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.
Far away, there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
hmmm, that one reminds me of the motto the class of 1961 at Parkersburg High School which went something like this: A man's grasp must always exceed his reach.
Actually, I never understood it. These days, I'm only slightly beginning to understand it.
I think Louisa May Alcott's statement makes much more sense.
