If you wish to reach the highest, begin at the lowest.
If you want a thing done well, do it yourself.
Sometimes you have to do things you don't want to do to get something better.
—Miranda Kenneally in Catching Jordan
There's no sense of satisfaction in something you didn't do anything to achieve.
—Mia Sheridan in Becoming Calder
We do what we must, and call it by the best names.
