My favorite quote; “Too low they build who build beneath the stars.” is attributed to the English poet Edward Young. I first saw the quote on the walls of the Library of Congress. They struck me deeply and I did my best to commit the quote to memory so I could write it down when I got back to our hotel. 

The words have never left my head since. 

They call us to reach higher than we think is possible. 

We should not aim for earthly success. We should not stay safe and protected, our dreams planted in the ground. We must build and push our dreams to stars. There is nothing holding us back but ourselves. Do not build too low, build your dreams to the stars.
