The fact of being true to who I AM......

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved. —Helen Keller
Family: like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one. —Unknown
You cannot talk about grit—you have to embody it.
You cannot talk about faith—you have to live it.
You cannot talk about the desert—you have to cross it. —Dr. Dragos Bratasanu
We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less. —Diogenes of Sinope
Loyalty means nothing unless it has at its heart the absolute principle of self-sacrifice. —Woodrow Wilson
To thrive in life you need three bones. A wishbone. A backbone. And a funny bone. —Reba McEntire
Remember, laughter is 10 times more powerful than screams. —Mike Wazowski (Monsters Inc.)
