“If you want to be successful in a particular field of endeavour, I think perseverance is one of the key qualities. It’s very important that you find something that you care about, that you have a deep passion for, because you’re going to have to devote a lot of your life to it.”
- George Lucas

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit."
