“Embrace the faith that every challenge surmounted by your energy; every problem solved by your wisdom; every soul stirred by your passion; and every barrier to justice brought down by your determination will ennoble your own life, inspire others, serve your country, and explode outward the boundaries of what is achievable on this earth.”      (Madeleine Albright)


“If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks.   I’ve had them; everybody has had them.   But obstacles don’t have to stop you.   If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up.   Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”      (Michael Jordan)


“Change is not a bolt of lightning that arrives with a zap.   It is a bridge built brick by brick, every day, with sweat and humility and slips.   It is hard work, and slow work, but it can be thrilling to watch it take shape.”     (Sarah Hepola)


“Trust that little voice in your head that says ‘Wouldn’t it be interesting if … .’   And then do it.”      (Duane Michals)
