The effort you exude and the faith you have in yourself counts for more than any accomplishment you can hope to attain, that’s why the "chase" is so exhilarating. The feeling of the unknown and its vast possibilities is somewhat unsettling but ten times more inspiring. (DM)
These things give you hope. The “chase” makes you strive for the best, give your best, be the best.
Is it the same with patience? Or with one’s fortitude in waiting?
