Quote ~ Be a light unto yourself. Take nothing for granted. Inspect what you expect. Trust but verify. In a life overwhelmed by information flows, the search for demonstrable truth, facts and wisdom, it is easy to follow the path of least resistance. Don’t give in to entropy. Choose the road less traveled. Invest in effort others shun, and your return will be exponential.
“We choose to go to the moon not because it is easy but because it is hard.” ~ JFK
