The Quote is so nice.


She stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails. —Elizabeth Edwards
Happiness is a journey, not a destination. For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin—real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. —Alfred D. Souza
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later. —Og Mandino
Sportsmanship for me is when a guy walks off the court and you really can't tell whether he won or lost, when he carries himself with pride either way. —James Spencer "Jim" Courier

Comparison is the thief of joy. —Theodore Roosevelt
Believe in your infinite potential. Your only limitations are those you set upon yourself. —Roy T. Bennett
Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings.

We are all in this life together. —Linda Thompson
In matters of principle, stand like a rock; in matters of taste, swim with the current.  —Thomas Jefferson
True grit is making a decision and standing by it, doing what must be done. No moral man can have peace of mind if he leaves undone what he knows he should have done. —John Wayne
We find greatest joy, not in getting, but in expressing what we are. Men do not really live for honors or for pay; their gladness is not the taking and holding, but in doing, the striving, the building, the living. It is a higher joy to teach than to be taught. It is good to get justice, but better to do it; fun to have things but more to make them. The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself. —R.J. Baughan
To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness. —Confucius
All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust. —James M. Barrie
Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth. —Buddha
Nothing is ever lost by courtesy. It is the cheapest of pleasures, costs nothing, and conveys much. —Erastus Wiman
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
