An excellent quote that I point to when discussing many endeavors of little apparent worth. So many people seem to think that the only efforts worth undertaking are those that bear useful or immediate fruits. Whatever happened to doing things just because?

Also, Kennedy references the "Because it's there" line in his "We choose to go to the Moon" speech. That is another good one.
