Probably over a year ago... a teacher during one of the lessons passed out a sheet of paper with a quote of something written by... well it's anonymous. But it was read by Jeffrey Hoffman, Astronaut- during a Challenger Flight, April 1985.

You cannot stay on the summit forever.
You have to come down again.
So why bother in the first place?
Just this...
What is above knows what is below.
But what is below does not know what is above.
One climbs. One sees. One descends.
One sees no longer.
One has seen.
There's an art of conducing oneself in the lower regions
By the memory of what one saw higher up.
When one can no longer see
One can at least still know.
