One of my favorite quotes is by Gandhi, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” I never lose sight of the fact that life is short so I always celebrate the small moments. I pride myself on being a lifelong learner and embrace the truth that knowledge has no limits.
