You Don't Want to Miss That

"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible."
- Lawrence of Arabia (1888-1935)

"Every man with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds... Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
- Mark Twain (1835-1910)

"Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway."
- Earl Nightingale

“If you don’t prepare yourself, the inner experience is not going to happen.” Story Musgrave, flew on six space shuttle missions in a 30 year career with NASA. “I tried very hard to get space. It takes real work to have the best experience.” Too many of his colleague told him they regretted blasting off, then losing the whole amazing experience in the tasks at hand. “Day and night passes, you see the aurora, shooting stars flash by, the moon races over the river of ocean. You don’t want to miss that.”

How real is that? Musgrave’s observations apply to everything in life, don’t they?
