This quote came up in a workshop I was in the other day and, for whatever reason, I felt compelled to note it down for later.
I think one of the wonderful things about these words are they could mean different things to different people.
To me, it means keep getting better, keep striving, keep working towards those goals.
[It seems rather apt in light of this post, too.]
But it also implies it is OK to stop, survey the surroundings before moving on again.
Thomas Huxley was a biologist, a contemporary of Charles Darwin and the grandfather of author Aldous Huxley. He was largely self-taught after his formal schooling finished at the age of 10 before apprenticeships and enrolment in a college at the age of 16 started him on a tertiary education.
He was not without his controversy but he certainly lived up to his words and was a respected scholar and leader of many esteemed associations.
These words seem a good way to kick off the week.
