 Do Good Minimize

“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.”

― John Wesley
 A Good Traveler Minimize

"A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving."
- Lao Tzu 
 Persistence Minimize

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.  Genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

- Calvin Coolidge
 Here by Grace Minimize

"But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain.  On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me." 
- 1 Corinthians 15:10
 The Edge Minimize

"When you have come to the edge of all the light you know, and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen: There will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught to fly."

-Barbara J. Winter

 Following Your Dreams Minimize

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams!  Live the life you've imagined."
-Henry David Thoreau
 Success in Life Minimize

"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.  This is to have succeeded."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
 Preparation Minimize

The will to win is meaningless without the will to prepare.
-Joe Gibbs
 Wrestling Proverb Minimize

Leave it all on the mat.
 Missed Shots Minimize

You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take.
-Wayne Gretzky
 Life's a Journey Minimize

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow - what a ride!"


 Dream Minimize

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.
-James Dean
 Sailing Proverb Minimize

We cannot direct the winds, but we can adjust our sails.
 I Shall Not Pass This Way Again Minimize

I expect to pass through life but once. If, therefore, there can be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now...as I shall not pass this way again.

-William Penn
 Do Not Wait Minimize

Do not wait; the time will never be just right.  Start where you stand, and work with whatever tools you may have at your command, and better tools will be found as you go along.
-Napoleon Hill
 Swim or Stand Minimize

In matters of style, swim with the current; In matters of principle, stand like a rock.
-Thomas Jefferson
 Never Too Late Minimize

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

-George Eliot 
 How Things Turn Out Minimize

Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.

-John Wooden

 School vs. Life Minimize

The difference between school and life? In school, you're taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you're given a test that teaches you the lesson.

-Tom Bodett

 Children Minimize

Your children will become what you are; so be what you want them to be.

-David Bly

 Ingredients of Success Minimize

The First ingredient of Success - making good decisions - has no real value without the second one, which is practicing good discipline. Let's face it: Everyone wants to be thin, but nobody wants to diet. Everybody wants to live long, but not many want to exercise. Everybody wants money, yet few want to work hard. Successful people conquer their feelings and form the habit of doing things unsuccessful people do not like to do. The bookends of Success are starting and finishing. Decisions help us start. Discipline helps us finish.

-Dr. John

 Don't Interrupt Minimize

The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.

-Chinese Proverb

 Success before Work Minimize

The dictionary is the only place where success comes before work.  Hard work is the price we must pay for success.  You can accomplish anything if you're willing to pay the price.

-Vince Lombardi
 Our Deepest Fear Minimize

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There ... See there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
-Marianne Williamson
 Small Deeds Minimize

Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.

-Peter Marshall

 Play Minimize

We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing!
-Benjamin Franklin
 Time Minimize

You will never "find" time for anything.  If you want time,  you must make it. 

-Charles Bruxton

 Character Minimize

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."

Abraham Lincoln
 Happiness Minimize

"The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness.  You have to catch it yourself."

Benjamin Franklin
 Attitude Minimize

"A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort."

Herm Albright
 Courage Minimize

"Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway."

John Wayne
 A Ship in Harbor Minimize

"A ship in harbor is safe, but that's not what a ship is for."

William Shedd
 The Critic Minimize

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. 

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for 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 he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

U. S. President Teddy Roosevelt
"Citizenship in a Republic,"
Speech at the Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910


 Defeat Minimize

"Being defeated is only a temporary condition; giving up is what makes it permanent."
