Quoted from the Republic of Singapore Navy,
"Set your course by the stars, not by the lights of every passing ship."
Look to the stars, fix your eyes upon your goals and dreams. And let the truths and values by which you live, guide your life.
Though it may be tempting to follow the passing lights of easier paths, stay true to your dreams, and to yourself.
And you'll eventually find yourself in that higher place you set out to be.
