Zen Pencils by Gavin Aung Than for January 10, 2014
The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don't want it badly enough. They're there to stop the other people. -Randy Pausch
As much as I enjoy the usual strips here, this is probably not the best representation of the quote. I doubt the guy who fell did not want to live badly enough.I think this is more applicable where a person has the choice to give up or take the easy way out but still carries on to achieve great things because they are absolutely committed.Still, great work Mr Gavin. This quote is especially important to me as I am chasing a distance dream forsaking many things other people value. I would also recommend people to search “Randy Pausch Last Lecture” on Youtube to see this quote in its broader context.
