Best Answer

in the game of hearts, it refers to taking all the tricks.


Aim high. It means set great goals for yourself, and try your best. Don't aim at easy-to-reach goals. Go for something that shows the best of your ability.

There is a great quote: "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."

This means, aim high, because even if you don't quite get where you're going, you'll get pretty close.

PS: But, aren't stars billions of kilometers farther than Moon? I find this quote really lame.

Dream the impossible!
