{quotable thursdays}

Busy day & I almost forgot to post a quote! Finished teaching for the semester today--yipee! Welcome Christmas!
Here's a quote about working and trying hard to obtain your goals. The things that mean most in life are often the things you have to work the hardest at. Dreams are obtainable, but you have to be willing to work really really hard sometimes:

"for of what is valuable and excellent, the gods grant nothing to mankind without labor and care; [...] if you seek to be beloved by your friends, you must serve your friends; if you desire to be honored by any city, you must benefit that city; [...] if you are anxious that the earth should yield you abundance of fruit, you must cultivate the earth; if you think that you should enrich yourself from herds of cattle, you must bestow care upon herds of cattle; [...] or if you wish to be vigorous in body, you must accustom your body to obey your mind, and exercise it with toil and exertion."
                                           --Xenophon, Memorabilia of Socrates

In other words, if you really want to achieve your goals, don't lounge about:
