"You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by the short-range failures,” said Charles C. Noble, the Dean of Hendricks Memorial Chapel at Syracuse University, at a conference meeting in 1951. Noble’s quotation has been used in the life insurance industry and in finance—where long-range goals are necessary. The quotation was a favorite of Ronald Reagan (1911-2004).
