Quote of the Week

For the next 4 weeks, my Quote of the Week will be coming from Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Sonya Sotomayor’s book “My Beloved World”.

I had it on my reading list because we share growing up in the Bronx. I have never met her but while reading her book it was like going back in time to my childhood in the Bronx. The book is not only a wonderful detailing of her life but shows how, even when life is rough, there is always a chance to see your dreams come true.

Here is what she wrote about dreams:

“But experience has taught me that you cannot value dreams according to the odds of their coming true. Their real value is in stirring within us the will to aspire. That will, wherever it finally leads, does at least move you forward. And after a time you may recognize that the proper measure of success is not how much you’ve closed the distance to some far-off goal but the quality of what you’ve done today” – Preface to the book
