“We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.” —Henry Ward Beecher

  1. As it has always been said, it’s not that goal which is what people should be very focused about. I mean, it is the “summary” of what one has been through in order to get there and it is that person’s reward. But it’s that “summary”, that journey that made one get where he or she is, that should always matter. It takes really hard work and that’s what should always inspire people to do better.

  2. I totally agree. Sometimes the distance travelled is much more valuable than the things that the person had made during the travel.

  3. Yes as one would always say the journey at times matters more than the destination. Simply put sure one becomes the best is awesome but knowing what it took to get there is cooler.

  4. I know this because the race is never for the Swift. It good to applaud anyone that have made a move to succeed

  5. Yes and yes and yes. Most excellence we see atimes are just luck not and hard work yielded excellence. God fatherism kind of oness

  6. I understand that we should not be envious of people who succeed or are recognized because they have long and sacrificed their way to get to be where they are.
