Never, never, never, never give up.
Obstacles will look large or
small to you according to whether
you are large or small.
--Orison Swett Marden
Opposition is a natural part of life. Just
as we develop our physical muscles
through overcoming opposition - such as
lifting weights - we develop our character muscles
by overcoming challenges and adversity.
--Stephen R. Covey
Patience and perseverance have
a magical effect before which difficulties
disappear and obstacles vanish
--John Quincy Adams
Never measure the height of a
mountain, until you have reached
the top. Then you will see
how low it was.

Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It's a way to live.
We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder
Who does not thank for little will not thank for much.
We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel.

"We will either find a way or make one."
"Every worthwhile accomplishment, big or little, has its stages of drudgery and triumph; a beginning, a struggle and a victory."
"A determined soul will do more with a rusty monkey wrench than a loafer will accomplish with all the tools in a machine shop."

--Alexander Graham Bell
"A resolute determination is the truest wisdom."
"Determination is the wake-up call to the human will."
--Anthony (Tony) Robbins
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
--John Calvin Coolidge

Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the high road to pride, self-esteem and personal satisfaction.
A sign of wisdom and maturity is when you come to terms with the realization that your decisions cause your rewards and consequences. You are responsible for your life, and your ultimate success depends on the choices you make.
Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.
When we have begun to take charge of our lives, to own ourselves, there is no longer any need to ask permission of someone.
Whoever renders service to many puts himself in line for greatness - great wealth, great return, great satisfaction, great reputation, and great joy.
You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.
You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of.
The day you take complete responsibility for yourself, the day you stop making any excuses, that's the day you start to the top.

“Control your destiny or someone else will!”
“Cherish your visions. Cherish your ideals. Cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.”
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
“As long as you are going to think anyway—you might as well think BIG!”
“Cherish your vision and your dreams as they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.”

"Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don´t have to have a college degree to serve. You don´t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."
"Dwell in possibility."
-- "The potential of the average person is like a huge ocean unsailed, a new continent unexplored, a world of possibilities waiting to be released and channeled toward some great good."
-- "No matter how dark things seem to be or actually are, raise your sights and see the possibilities - always see them, for they´re always there."
-- "Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential."
"If we did all the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astonish ourselves."
-- Thomas A. Edison
"Human beings have the remarkable ability to turn nothing into something. They can turn weeds into gardens and pennies into fortunes."
