To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and
the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and
endure the betrayal of false friends;

To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a little bit better, whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;

To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.


"I don't give a fig for the simplicity this side of complexity;
but I would die for the simplicity on the other side"

Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

…it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.

Ann Landers

True nobility is in being superior to your previous self.

Hindustani proverb

The ten most powerful two letter words:
If it is to be, it is up to me.

Success is 99 percent failure.

Soichiro Honda
Founder of Honda Motor Corporation

Anyone can become angry - that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not easy.

The Nicomachean Ethics

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

Frank Outlaw

He worked by day and toiled by night.
He gave up play and some delight.
Dry books he read, new things to learn.
And forged ahead success to earn.
He plodded on with faith and pluck.
And when he won, others called it luck.
