To desire is to obtain; to aspire is to, achieve. Shall man\'s basest desires receive the fullest measure of gratification, and his purest aspirations starve for lack of sustenance?

Your Vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your Ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil.
