I like to use the analogy of going to the gym. If you go to the gym and your goal is, 'I want to look just like David Beckham,' then that drives you to do certain things. You may never look like Beckham, but it is a goal. Cities need the same thing. They need a vision and a plan for their ideal physique.
What you've done is done. You've got a goal you never reach, and it's always farther away. It keeps you walking. I don't want to sit down.

Ralph Adams Cram

We need to rekindle those values, those strengths as a nation and as a people... And we must do so as one people with one goal.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
