QUOTE FONT: Arabic Typesetting,
NOTE: For a great comic rendition of this see
NOTE: Today is my older brother’s birthday. He was the one who suggested these quotes on exploration, so this particular quote goes out to him. I think he embodies this quote in what he does for a living, which is managing a program for robotic prosthetics which recently made national news. He helps makes the dreams and hopes of many people and families become the reality of tomorrow. I am very proud of him. I hope he knows that.
