This is a testament of you having committed the rest of your life to mastering this subject.  Have the conviction

There is never infinite knowledge in our field. There is one human body. That is all you need to know.

There is no such thing as a bad test taker. Only bad attitudes.

You haven’t lost the battle, until you have. Put in your best until then. Don’t have a defeatist attitude.

Something is always better than nothing.

You will do far worse things than sit in a chair and with a pencil and paper and perhaps a can of diet coke, when you have been 30 hours post call.
