Default Don't Quit

Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will.
When the road youíre trudging seems all up hill.
When funds are low and the debts are high.
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but donít you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns.
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about.
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Donít give up though the pace seems slow Ė
You may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out Ė
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when youíre hardest hit Ė
Itís when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Red face

Some quotes to think about.


"Success is the sweetest revenge. "


"Pain is inevitable; suffering is optional."


"Keep on going, and the chances are you will stumble onto something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down."


"If we do what is necessary, all the odds are in our favor."

Red face Flaws or Uniqueness?

A water bearer in India had two large pots, each on the ends of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water.

At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full. For two years this went on every day, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water to his house. Naturally, the perfect pot was very proud of its accomplishments, perfect for which it was made, but the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do.

After two years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream. I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologise to you. I have been able to deliver only half of my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house. "Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don't get full value from your efforts," the pot said.

The bearer replied, "Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's side? This is because I have always known of your flaw, and I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you have watered them.

For two years I have been able to pick these flowers to decorate my house. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty to grace the house."

Default We Are Family

We Are Family Lyrics

(CHORUS
We are family
I got all my SISTAS with me
We are family
Get up ev'rybody and sing

Ev'ryone can see we're together
As we walk on by
(FLY!) and we fly just like birds of a feather
I won't tell no lie
(ALL!) all of the people around us they say
Can they be that close
Just let me state for the record
We're giving love in a family dose

(CHORUS x2)

Living life is fun and we've just begun
To get our share of the world's delights
(HIGH!) high hopes we have for the future
And our goal's in sight
(WE!) no we don't get depressed
Here's what we call our golden rule
Have faith in you and the things you do
You won't go wrong
This is our family Jewel

Here are my pearls of wisdom that I have found and am sharing
Don't give up what you want most for what you want at the moment.

Life is like a coin you can spend it anyway you wish , but you only get to spend it once. ( Do I really want to spend anymore time fat?)

The greatest triumphs often come after the biggest setbacks. The most substantial successes are often preceded by numerous failures. Why does achievement so regularly rise out of disappointment? Because disappointment can be such a powerful teacher.

Others could tell you a thousand times what doesn't work, and still you might be tempted to try it. Once you've experienced disappointing results for yourself, however, you're not going to make the same mistake again.

Are you hesitant to move forward because there's the possibility of a setback? Then consider that every short-term disappointment can serve to build a stronger foundation for long-term achievement.

Even when you're not getting the results you want, you're making progress. Every experience, whether successful or not, can teach you how to do it better.

So go ahead, step forward, and travel confidently in the direction of your dreams. For even though the setbacks and disappointments will come, you surely have nothing to fear.

And, even more importantly, you have everything to gain.

-- Ralph Marston

Lightbulb Zen of the Day

Restore Harmony,
Create Peace in all situations.
Rather than pushing the river,
Flow with it.

Talking

"Do not think of today's failures, but
of the success that may come tomorrow. You
have set yourself a diffult task, but you
will succeed if you persevere; and you will
find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember,
no effort that we make to attain something
beautiful is lost." -- Helen Keller
