~ Never Give Up ~

Have you ever observed nature closely? Have you ever noticed how a seed fights the earth to emerge into a victorious plant? Have you observed how a bird, with precision and hard work, finally manages to build its nest? Nature does not give up. Why should we?

A man may conquer a million men in battle but one who conquers himself is,
indeed, the greatest of conquerors.

The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.

The drops of rain make a hole in the stone not by violence but by oft falling.

There are three ingredients in the good life: learning, earning and yearning.

Success doesn't come to you… go to it.

God gives every bird a worm, but he does not throw it into the nest.

Health, happiness and success depend upon the fighting spirit of each person. The big thing is not what happens to us in life - but what we do about what happens to us.

Every one of us, unconsciously, works out a personal philosophy of life, by which we are guided, inspired, and corrected, as time goes on. It is this philosophy by which we measure out our days, and by which we advertise to all about us the man, or woman, that we are. . . . It takes but a brief time to scent the life philosophy of anyone. It is defined in the conversation, in the look of the eye, and in the general mien of the person. It has no hiding place. It's like the perfume of the flower — unseen, but known almost instantly. It is the possession of the successful, and the happy. And it can be greatly embellished by the absorption of ideas and experiences of the useful of this earth.
