“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.  I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.”

– Louisa May Alcott

Yesterday, I delivered the keynote address for the Kern County Music Educators Association annual fall meeting.  As many of you know, I use several quotations to highlight the themes in my talks.  For the past few years, I have been concluding several talks with this quote from Louisa May Alcott.

I really like the quote and I find it difficult to say without choking up.  I thought about it while I was driving up to Bakersfield to deliver my talk.  The sun was just coming up over the mountains and I was deep in thought thinking about the future.  For me, just starting my new career, it is important to always remember why I took the steps to make the change – and what I hope to accomplish.  This quote says it all.

Please share some of your favorite quotes with the readers of this blog.
