This is a very important lesson. You must never confuse faith that you will prevail in the end — which you can never afford to lose — with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be.

Admiral James B. Stockdale

There is nothing so horrible in nature as to see a beautiful theory murdered by an ugly gang of facts.

Benjamin Franklin

There are those who work all day. Those who dream all day. And those who spend an hour dreaming before setting to work to fulfill those dreams. Go into the third category because there’s virtually no competition.
