'Time is the fire in which we burn'

Faced with the reality of time, its beguiling to consider indifference and lapse into a lethargic state of living where by ambition fades into memory.

The rewards of tenacity are not dependent on acheiving a definitive victory, but equally so on striving towards victory. Onwards, and ever upwards, the examples set by the great pioneers of science continue to inspire, though my plan to be the first space marine on Mars is probably no longer viable...
