 The only real mistake is the one  from which we learn nothing. --  John Powell

 Keep away from people who try to  belittle your ambitions. Small people  always do that, but the really great  ones make you feel that you too,  can become great.

 "I won't say ours was a tough  school, but we had our own coroner.  We used to write essays like: What  I'm going to be if I grow up."
 Lenny Bruce .
