“Failures – Dream and Awaken”

“When the morning’s freshness has been replaced by the weariness of midday, when the leg muscles give under the strain, the climb seems endless, and suddenly nothing will go quite as you wish – it is then that you must not hesitate.”      (Dag Hammarskjöld)



“I believe in the power of important quotations.  I always keep a few in my mind to think about.…  I can always join the best minds of the centuries.  In their great thoughts I can find the courage to believe in the best that I can find in myself.”     (Elmer G. Letterman)



“Teacher, student, factory worker, salesperson, executive, parent, coach, athlete, doctor, lawyer – whatever challenges you accept in this life, whatever task you must perform for your daily bread … never, never neglect the little things.

You are a special creation of God.  Never allow anything that originates with you, in deeds or materials or effort or kindness, to be less than your best.  Only the failures and the mediocrities neglect the little things.”      (Og Mandino)



“You build on failure.  You use it as a stepping stone.  Close the door on the past.  You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it.  You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.”  (Johnny Cash)



“Although the world is very full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.”   (Helen Keller)



“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart.  Who looks outside, dreams.  Who looks inside, awakens.”    (Carl Jung)
