Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! - Henry David Thoreau

Other quotes I like tend to sound kind of cynical... and I thought a Thoreau quote is better than a Beatles quote.

"There is subtle difference between a mission and a promise. A mission is something you strive to accomplish - a promise is something you are compelled to keep. One is individual, the other's shared. When a mission and a promise are one and the same...that's when mountains are moved and races are won."
