Biggest Accomplishment
"To him whose elastic and vigorous thought keeps pace with the sun, the day is always at morning. 
It matters not what the clock says, or the attitudes and labors of men. 
Morning is when I am awake and there is a dawn in me...To be awake is to be alive. 
I have never met a man who was quite awake. How could I have looked him in the face?...
We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, 
but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us in our soundest sleep. 
I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavour."
