“My whole life has largely been one of surprises.  I believe that any man’s life will be filled with constant, unexpected encouragements of this kind if he makes up his mind to do his level best each day of his life – that is, tries to make each day reach as nearly as possible the high-water mark of pure, unselfish, useful living.”

– Booker T. Washington,
from his book Up From Slavery
