"Somehow I can't believe there are many heights that can't be scaled by a man who knows the secret of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized by four Cs. They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy, and the greatest of these is Confidence. If you believe a thing, believe it all over, implicitly and unquestioningly."
