You can't hit a home run unless you step up to the plate.
You can't catch fish unless you put your line in the water.
You can't reach your goals if you don't try.
The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal.
The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach.
It isnít a calamity to die with dreams unfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream.
It isnít a disgrace to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for.
Whenever you get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.

You found the perfect vantage point for this shot, Ai Li. And by leaving so much space in the top of the image you allow us to move forward with him.

Words to live by and the perfect image to go with it. The future is our's to grasp on to and to call our own, to live like there is no tomorrow, to love like you never have before. We only go around once in life and each day is a blessing. This shot reminds me of journeys not yet taken, goals ready to be made. Excellent work, Ai Li! This is amazing!!!!!;)
Craig Persel22-Apr-2008 20:08

A very strong composition.
Kathy Pedersen22-Apr-2008 13:23
Wise words to live by, and I can see light at the end of the tunnel. Such a powerful image to match your words.
Jen Bixler22-Apr-2008 13:18
Powerful.
Guest 22-Apr-2008 13:04
The path looks obvious, but the way - and the tools - to reach it is not.
I wish to have no goals though... just for a little bit... a way to rest.
Classic and elegant image.
Guest 22-Apr-2008 10:42
Very nicely composed...it feels as if he is looking ahead beyond the arch, leaving us wonder what awaits him beyond the bend.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you’ll land among the stars.

Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.
Nicki Thurgar22-Apr-2008 08:31
Oh, Ai Li, this is beautiful - and the words are so wise and so true!
Reach for those stars!
Dan Chusid22-Apr-2008 07:02
Pretty scenery here from bottom to top.
The words add just the right harmony.
