YES, I WAS LISTENING TO AT LEAST ONE SCHOOL ASSEMBLY
'Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.'

Inspirational et el but two things about this quote bug me no end:

1. Technically speaking, the stars are 'higher' than the moon. Now, admittedly, I don't know the century in which this quote came up, but surely somebody could correct the error? I mean, I get the sentiment and message and stuff but still...

2. Let's assume that we're aiming for the stars and we get the moon. I can't help being pessimistic- after all that aiming and work, wouldn't that be a bit disappointing?

    seriously when are u giving up being so cynical? the part abt working and not getting the 'moon' is just a way of saying that one should do their best and be afraid ti do what they want to just because it seems impossible. just like the hindi quote of 'kaam karo aur fal ki pratiksha mat karo'.
    as for the stars being farther than the moon well this is english we are talking about not science so being factually correct is immaterial

If knowing oneself is really proof of not knowing oneself this part of the profile is so pointless...
