Welcome Statue of Liberty

WISTFUL RUMINATIONS:
I hope the following help you as much as they have helped me.

Courage is not about overcoming FEAR, it is the realization that one voice, one life.......................matters.  
 
If you can't convince them, confuse them.  (Guy Zima's motto)
 
"I haven't outgrown a lot of things, and I hope I never do."  Bob Uecker
 
Parts of us must die if new dimensions of our being are to emerge.--Existentialist Philosophy
 
"Be the change you want to see in the world."  Ghandi
 

"The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much: it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little."  President Franklin Delano Roosevelt

"Let us begin in the place where we are."  Mother Teresa

"Sometimes you just have to play the hand you're dealt."  James Brady

"Never give up, never give up, never, never, NEVER."  Winston Churchill

"A mind that is stretched to a new idea never returns to its original dimensions."  Oliver Wendell Holmes

"If you think you can, you can.  If you think you can't, you can't."  Mark Twain

A SUCCESSFUL LIFE, ACCORDING TO RALPH WALDO EMERSON:

"To laugh often and much;  to win the respect of intelligent people and 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 bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;  to know even one life has breathed easier because I have lived.  This is to have succeeded."

"The BEST leaders LISTEN more than they TALK."  After a few years in politics, I firmly believe this to be true.
 
Similarly--"Why do you speak so loudly that I cannot hear what you say?"  Ralph Waldo Emerson
 
"Advice is seldom welcome.  Those who need it most, like it least."
 
"Behavior that is not corrected, is repeated."
 
"No army can withstand the strength of an idea whose time has come."  Victor Hugo
 
"Periods of tranquility are seldom prolific of creative achievement.  Mankind has to be stirred up."  Alfred North Whitehead
 
 

--PERSPECTIVE--
We can't direct the winds, but we can adjust our sails!
