Rabbi Yisrael Salanter said, "On Judgment Day, I will not be afraid of the question why I was not great like Moses. The question I need to keep in mind is why I was not everything that Yisrael Salanter could have been!"
(Toras Hanefesh, p.48; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.221. This is frequently related in the name of the chassidic master Reb Zushe.)
