Today's inspiring quote comes from writer and journalist Ann Druyan, whom I heard on an old episode of the Little Atoms podcast. Do I do obscure cultural references like a champ, or what? Anyhoo, here's the quote, as short as it is brilliant:

All the way to heaven is heaven.

And here I am, about to go fight for a world title in team fight today and individual fight tomorrow, thinking: hey, you know what? All the road to gold is, itself, gold.

I should remember to enjoy the ride.
