"Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance
 to work hard at work worth doing" 
 
                                               -- Theodore Roosevelt
 
"Play the hand you're dealt. Don't bother to be better than your 
contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself" 

 
                                               -- William Faulkner
