“No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to flee and fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams.”
Rev. Jesse Jackson


God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
-- Reinhold Niebuhr


It's not what you do once in a while, it's what you do day in and day out that makes the difference.
-- Jenny Craig


You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.
-- Eleanor Roosevelt

"Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can."

My favorite is actually a toast;
Here's to you as good as you are,
and here's to me as bad as I am,
but as good as you are,
and as bad as I am,
I'm as good as you are,
as bad as I am...

It is far better to keep your mouth shut, and let the world assume you a fool, than to open it and remove all doubt...

“You have conquered, and I yield. But from now on you also are dead; dead to the world, to heaven, and to hope! You were a part of me. In my death, see by this body which is your own how surely you have murdered yourself.”~Edgar Allan Poe

"Use your head, cut off theirs." ~ Max Brooks ( zombie survival guide)


From the wonderful Ralph Waldo

“To be great is to be misunderstood.”

“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.”

“People only see what they are prepared to see.”

These are two of my favorites from him....

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
Winston Churchill

A man does what he must - in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures - and that is the basis of all human morality.
Winston Churchill


one more...

Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.
Winston Churchill

Do to others what you would have them do to you.

When making gifts of mercy do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing that your gifts of mercy may be made in secret.

Jesus Christ.
Happiness keeps you sweet, Trials keeps you strong, Sorrows keeps you human, Life keeps you humble, Success keeps you glowing, But true friends keep you going.
