“It Only Matters What You Do”

“I was giving up.  I would have given up — if a voice hadn’t made itself heard in my heart.  The voice said “I will not die.  I refuse it.  I will make it through this nightmare.  I will beat the odds, as great as they are.  I have survived so far, miraculously.  Now I will turn miracle into routine. The amazing will be seen everyday.  I will put in all the hard work necessary.  Yes, so long as God is with me, I will not die.  Amen.”    (Yann Martel, Life of Pi)


 “Remember, Red.  Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.  Get busy living or get busy dying.”     (The Shawshank Redemption)


“Every person passing through this life will unknowingly leave something and take something away.  Most of this “something” cannot be seen or heard or numbered or scientifically detected or counted.  It’s what we leave in the minds of other people and what they leave in ours.  Memory.  The census doesn’t count it. Nothing counts without it.”    (Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten)


“It doesn’t matter what you say you believe – it only matters what you do.”      (Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten)
