Quotes on Success

"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 a sin."
~ Benjamin E. Mayes ~
American minister, educatorscholar, social activist 
and the president of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia from 1940 to 1967
