The greatest achievement of the human spirit is to live up to
one’s opportunities, and to make the most of one’s resources.

Think of yourself on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole
clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!

give it the best there is in you,
seize your opportunities, and
be a member of the team.
