"I wish I had the power to retouch my life as the artist retouches his picture. But I cannot do so. My life must stand alone or fail by what I have done, not by what I have dreamt."
-- Samuel Smiles 1850
Who hasn't or doesn't wish you could retouch aspects of your life? I know I do but of course I can't. There is much of my life I am proud of and there is much more I intend to do in the future and i hope I can step up the quantity and quality of those achievements. Yet in the end it won't be my dreams that tell the story of my life but what I have done and achieved. And I'm good with that....
