It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal.  The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. 

It isn’t a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream. 

It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideal, but it is a disaster to have no ideal to capture.

It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for. 

Not failure, but low aim is sin.
