“Keep these concepts in mind:  You’ve failed many times, although you don’t remember.  You fell down the first time you tried to walk.  You almost drowned the first time you tried to swim.  Don’t worry about failure.  My suggestion to each of you:  Worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.”  (Sherman Finesilver)



“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 Jordon)



“If I can dream, I can act.  And if I can act, I can become”    (Poh Yu Khing)



“When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.

Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.”    (Cherokee Expression)
