Yazzy Summer Morning Mix

“It must be borne in mind that the tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream…”
-Dr. Benjamin E. Mays
“Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.”
-Leon J. Suenes
