One of the first things children learn in school is to shoot for the moon, right? Everyone has heard that old cliché a million times by now.
Shoot for the moon even if you miss you’ll probably land somewhere. Not sure if you’ll make it because I’m not sure if you’ll land on a soft surface but anyway yeah.— Tony Oller (@FollowOller) January 3, 2018
Shoot for the moon; if you miss you will die in outer space, which is cool— rpdr quotes (@RuBotDragRace) January 1, 2018
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you’ll end up in the vacuum of space and won’t have to live with your failure.— Joshua (@joshlipp44) January 1, 2018
"I'd shoot for the moon but I'm too busy gazing at stars."— Eminem's Lyrics (@EminemLyrcs) January 3, 2018
But has anyone given much thought as to what "shoot for the moon" really means?
It used to mean an impossibly hard task... but we've been to the moon. We've been to the moon nine times.
