"Every doctor has a dirty little secret; we're all competitive science nerds. In grade school we made the biggest and the best volcanoes which erupted actual, fake, molten lava. In junior high we spent hours slaving over our rat mazes so that one day we'd be the person who changed the face of medicine, forever."
"Sometimes the key to making progress is recognising how to take that very first step, then you start your journey. You hope for the best and you stick with it, day in, day out. Even if you're tired, even if you want to walk away, you don't. Because you are a pioneer. But nobody ever said it'd be easy..."
