Favorite Quote 
Watch your way as a cautious traveler and don't be gazing at that mountain or that river in the distance saying "How should I ever get over them?" But keep to the present little inch that is before you and accomplish that in that little moment what belongs to it. The mountain and the river can only be passed in the same way. and when you come to them you will come to the light and the strength that belong to them.
