“To Change One’s Life ….”

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”   (Robert Luis Stevenson)



“We are all masters of our own destiny.  We can so easily make the same mistakes over and over.  We can so easily flee from everything that we desire and which life so generously places before us.

Alternately, we can surrender ourselves to Divine Providence, take God’s hand, and fight for our dreams, believing that they always arrive at the right moment.”   (Paulo Coelho, Brida)



“Hold fast to dreams,

For If dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird,

That cannot fly.”   (Langston Hughes)



“The greatest thing about dreams is they don’t expire.  They can lay dormant for years and when you pull them out and dust them off, they shine like new.”   (Casi McLean)



“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”   (Lou Holtz)



“To change one’s life:

1)  Start immediately,

2)  Do it flamboyantly,

3)  No exceptions.”   (William James)



“We all die.  The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.”   (Chuck Palahniuk)
