Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way.
Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning.
Watch your thoughts, for they become words.Watch your words, for they become actions.Watch your actions, for they become habits.Watch your habits, for they become character.Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure

We're not too far off.
(June 13, 1983 - )
It's a troublesome world. All the people who're in it
are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the places and people you're lucky you're not.
