...do what all good scientists do.
Make it your motto day and night.
And it will lead you to the light.
The apple on the top of the tree
is never too high to achieve.
So take an example from Eve:
Though interfering friends may frown.
At each attempt to hold you down.
If this advice you’ll only employ,
the future can offer you infinite joy
and you’ll see!
-Cole Porter (1933)
