Aspiration is the essence of what we call “the human spirit,” as reflected in many common sayings: Nothing ventured, nothing gained; The best is yet to be; Aim for the stars. Aspiration is what moves entrepreneurs to take risks for a new idea, what moves immigrants to seek better lives in another country, what moves all of us to pursue our vision of the life we want. These articles explore the many dimensions of aspiration and ways to maintain it in the face of challenges.
