Every step may be fruitful

"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb." This is my favorite quote by Winston Churchill. It is an ultimate expression of optimism and of a growth mindset. What courage and wisdom must it take to express such hope. I also like the way Churchill puts emphasis on improving slowly but steadily. Often the most valuable types of growth and progress happens this way: slowly and steadily. Finally, I like how the quote acknowledges that you will never be ready and that this is in fact good news. New challenges remain necessary to grow further.
