Some people earn millions for doing nothing but I find that people who have a good job they enjoy, a happy home are the lucky ones.

Anything that's worth it is always hard work.....let's teach that to our children. Unfortunately, there are many people who feel that they are entitled and things should come easy!

Thomas Jefferson's words of wisdom!


Grit is not just a simple elbow-grease term for rugged persistence. It is an often invisible display of endurance that lets you stay in an uncomfortable place, work hard to improve upon a given interest and do it again and again. —Sarah Lewis
Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.  —Mary Kay Ash
Comedy is defiance. It's a snort of contempt in the face of fear and anxiety. And it's the laughter that allows hope to creep back on the inhale. —Will Durst
The secret of getting ahead is getting started. —Mark Twain
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you. —Neil deGrasse Tyson
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. —T.S. Eliot
If everyone helps to hold up the sky, then one person does not become tired. —Dr. Askhari Johnson Hodari
With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity. —Keshavan Nair
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. —e. e. cummings
Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find his right road. —Dag Hammarskjold
To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness. —Robert Muller
Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from. —Terry Tempest Williams
I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help. There is no mistaking love…it is the common fiber of life, the flame that heats our soul, energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives. —Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. —J.R.R. Tolkien
What I admire in Columbus is not his having discovered a world, but his having gone to search for it on the faith of his own opinion. —Turgot
Where there is unity there is always victory. —Publius Syrus
