A few good quotes I recently read:
The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them – make them. – George Bernard Shaw
A great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do. – Walter Gagehot
Each time you are honest and conduct yourself with honesty, a success force will drive you toward greater success. Each time you live, even a little white lie, there are strong forces pushing you toward failure. – Joseph Sugarman
The achievement of your goal is assured the moment you commit yourself to it. – Mack R. Douglas
and now back to your regularly scheduled activities of watching cat and dog videos on the internet – me, just now.
