This was a quote painted in the form of a large three-storeyed poster in my high school quadrangle. I thought I’d share it with you. It always inspired me to reach for the sky.

The heights
By great men reached
And kept
Were not attained
In sudden flight
But, they
While their companions slept,
Were toiling upwards
In the night.

– H. W. Longfellow
in Good Poems For Hard Times
