"The secret is to know that the deck is stacked, that you will lose, that your hands or judgement will slip, and yet struggle to win for your patients. You can’t ever reach perfection, but you can believe in an asymptote toward which you are ceaselessly striving." – Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air
