Dedicate some of your life to others. Your dedication will not be a sacrifice. It will be an exhilarating experience because it is an intense effort applied toward a meaningful end. —Dr. Thomas Dooley
Dedication involves making the space to let young ideas take hold; every tree was once a seed and every company was once an idea. —Zephyr Bloch-Jorgensen
I can live for two months on a good compliment. —Mark Twain
I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.’ —Sylvia Plath
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are to some extent a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece by thought, choice, courage and determination. —John Luther
Love yourself, respect yourself. Never sell yourself short. Believe in yourself regardless of what other people think. You can accomplish anything, absolutely anything, if you set your mind to it. —Marcus Allen

Your opponent, in the end, is never really the player on the other side of the net, or the swimmer in the next lane, or the team on the other side of the field, or even the bar you must high-jump.

If character is what you do when no one is watching, then sportsmanship is that conduct with everybody watching. —Bob Ley
This I know. This I believe with all my heart. If we want a free and peaceful world, if we want to make deserts bloom and man to grow to greater dignity as a human being we can do it!  —Eleanor Roosevelt
