My life is my message.”
~Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company … a church … a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude … I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me, and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you … we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
~Charles Swindoll
Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.”
~Henry Van Dyke (1852-1933)
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strongman stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the area; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms; the great devotions; and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
~Theodore Roosevelt
If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you’re not doing anything very innovative.”

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not darkness that frightens us. We ask ourselves – Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?
~Nelson Mandela, Inaugural Address
Always tell the truth. Then you don’t have to remember anything.”
~Mark Twain, Roughin’ It
