High quality is never an accident; it is always the fruit of superior goals, earnest effort, intelligent planning and skilful execution.
The drive for excellence is a human characteristic. Man is a poetical creature who adorns and embellishes everything he touches. Excellence exemplifies the insatiable spirit of the human heart and soul.
The conquest of Mount Everest is excellence; the discovery of the law of gravity by Newton is excellence. The Taj Mahal is excellence exquisitely executed in white marble, a pearly teardrop on the cheek of time.
Every task is a signature of the person who performs it. Sign your work with exquisite excellence.
Your true destiny is to become an island of excellence in a sea of mediocrity. You are born to excel.
In this context, the words of John W. Gardner are very appropriate: “The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity, and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity, will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.”
