If you do not conquer self you will be conquered by self. Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice and is never the result of selfishness. Action is the real measure of intelligence. A goal is a dream with a deadline. Every adversity, every failure, and every heartache carries with it the seed on an equal or greater benefit. Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
