It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.

“There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.”
- Denis Waitley

“If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won't, you most assuredly won't. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.”
- Denis Waitley            

“Our limitations and success will be based, most often, on your own expectations for ourselves. What the mind dwells upon, the body acts upon.”

  “Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.”
- Denis Waitley         

“Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.”

 “Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the 'someday I'll' philosophy.”
- Denis Waitley 

 “Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.”
- Denis Waitley     

“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, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people 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% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”

 Charles R. Swindoll (American Writer and Clergyman, b.1934)

"There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread."
- Mother Teresa

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. - Plato

"I yam what I yam." - Popeye the sailor

Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.

Our greatest pretenses are built up not to hide the evil and the ugly in us, but our emptiness. The hardest thing to hide is something that is not there.
- Eric Hoffer, Passionate State of Mind, 1955

If you have love you will do all things well. - Thomas Merton

The man never feels the want of what it never occurs to him to ask for.
- Schopenhauer
