Setting targets too high to ever be achieved isn't daunting or discouraging --- it's exhilarating! Such goals will always be there, like infinity, forever beyond grasp. But isn't that better than working toward mundane ends, achieving them, and wondering what to do next?

Don't measure yourself against other people, however "great" their accomplishments may seem. They're human; they're limited; they're imperfect. Try for more. Look up, see the stars, and have the courage to strive for them.

Hopeless? No! Reaching out, escaping the box, transcending all limits --- in spite of certain failure --- that's the source of real hope in life.
