I just want to thank you for the great job your doing and I appreciate all that you have done for both teams


Great changes may not happen right away, but with effort even the difficult may become easy. —Bill Blackman
We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less. —Diogenes of Sinope
All the statistics in the world can’t measure the warmth of a smile. —Chris Hart
There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work. —Calvin Coolidge
It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do. —Moliere
Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. —Mark Twain
Gracious acceptance is an art—an art which most never bother to cultivate. We think that we have to learn how to give, but we forget about accepting things, which can be much harder than giving... Accepting another person's gift is allowing him to express his feelings for you. —Alexander McCall Smith
If everyone helps to hold up the sky, then one person does not become tired. —Dr. Askhari Johnson Hodari
If human beings are perceived as potentials rather than problems, as possessing strengths instead of weaknesses, as unlimited rather than dull and unresponsive, then they thrive and grow to their capabilities. —Barbara Bush
Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities. —Theodor Seuss Geisel
Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one. —Marcus Aurelius
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. —John R. Wooden
Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. —Reinhold Niebuhr
When someone steals another's clothes, we call them a thief. Should we not give the same name to one who could clothe the naked and does not? The bread in your cupboard belongs to the hungry; the coat unused in your closet belongs to the one who needs it; the shoes rotting in your closet belong to the one who has no shoes; the money which you hoard up belongs to the poor. —Saint Basil
We need not think alike to love alike. —Francis David
