“A Chapter Of Life / Roll the Dice”


“A Chapter of Life

Life is like a book with many different chapters.

Some tell of tragedy, others of triumph.  Some chapters are dull and ordinary, others intense and exciting.

The key to being a success in life is to never stop on a difficult page, to never quit on a tough chapter.

Champions have the courage to keep turning the pages because they know a better chapter lies ahead.”   (Author Unknown)



“Listening to your heart, finding out who you are, is not simple.  It takes time for the chatter to quiet down.  In the silence of ‘not doing’ we begin to know what we feel.  If we listen and hear what is being offered, then anything in life can be our guide.  Listen. “   (Found on a Poster, Unknown Author)
