“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”—Michael Jordan“Go for it, baby! Life ain’t no dress rehearsal.”—Tallulah Bankhead“Perfection is like chasing the horizon. Keep moving.”—Neil Gaiman“If you aren’t in over your head, how do you know how tall you are?”—T. S. Eliot“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”—Nelson Mandela
