“Here’s to the crazy ones. the misfits. the rebels. the trouble-makers. the round pegs in the square holes. the ones who see things differently. they’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. you can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. bc they change things. they push the human race forward. and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. bc the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

“The best dreams are the ones that don’t come with any road maps or directions,let alone with any promises or guarantees. They’re the ones that seem so far away, so hard to reach that lots of people say, ‘You just can’t do it.’ They say you should be more practical, more realistic, and after a while, you ALMOST start believing them – but not quite, because deep down in your heart, you believe in yourself. You know you have what it takes to keep working harder and harder, to keep trying over and over… you know you’ll never give up—you’re going to make it.”–Anonymous

The wish to learn is diffuse and general. The will to learn is concentrated and specific. The wish to learn means that we repeat a thing again and again hoping for something to happen. The will to learn means that we dig down and analyze, that we try to find out exactly what is wrong and exactly how to put it right. Let us take an analogy. A man may have a wish for better physical health and strength. His wish for health becomes a will to health only when he finds out what he must do to become more healthy, and then does it. So the will to learn means an intelligent and persistent search for the conditions of improvement and an intelligent and persistent concentration upon them.
