The one cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity. Dorothy Porter

Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.

The secret of getting AHEAD is getting STARTED.

You are never so strong as when you forgive.

If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything. Mark Twain

The man who doesn't read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them. Mark Twain

The mind is like a parachute - it works best when open.

Make each day your masterpiece.

Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.

Failure to prepare is preparing to fail. I will get ready and then, perhaps, my chance will come.

Be more interested in your character, which is what you really are, than in your reputation, which is what people perceive you to be.

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. Eleanor Roosevelt

People can alter their lives by altering their attitudes.

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what others think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company ... a church ... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past ... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude ... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you ... we are in charge of our attitudes. Charles Swindoll


If you THINK you are beaten, you are,
If you THINK you dare not, you don't
If you like to win, but THINK you can't
It is almost certain you won't!

If you THINK you'll lose, you're lost
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's WILL -
It's all in the state of MIND.

If you THINK you're outclassed, you are,
You've got to THINK high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who THINKS he can!!
