When I asked god for strength
He gave me difficult situations to face
When I asked god for brain & brawn
He gave me puzzles in life to solve
When I asked god for happiness
He showed me some unhappy people
When I asked god for wealth
He showed me how to work hard
When I asked god for favors
He showed me opportunities to work hard
When I asked god for peace
He showed me how to help others
God gave me nothing I wanted
He gave me everything I needed

Adventure is worthwhile.
Spread love everywhere you go, first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, to your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor.

Happiness depends more on the inward disposition of mind than on outward circumstances.
You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have really lived, are the moments when you have done things in a spirit of love.

Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.

The more goals you set - the more goals you get.
Mark Victor Hansen
Equations are more important to me, because politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity.
People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care.
Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting ; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.
This is this.

Emperor Joseph II, Amadeus (1984)
The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.
It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows great enthusiasms, great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
To know me is to love me.
I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.

It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare, it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
Yippie-ki-yay, motherfucker !
John McClane, Die Hard (1988)

Remember when you see a man at the top of a mountain, he didn't fall there.
No man or woman is an island. To exist just for yourself is meaningless. You can achieve the most satisfaction when you feel related to some greater purpose in life, something greater than yourself.
Happiness can not be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air
