Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no ones definition of your life, but define yourself. You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short-range failures. You cannot pick cherries with your back to the tree. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Some people walk in the rain. Others just get wet. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff …and it’s All Small Stuff.
The winds and waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators. It is better to light a small candle than to curse the darkness. The grass is not, in fact, always greener on the other side of the fence. No, not at all. Fences have nothing to do with it. The grass is greenest where it is watered. When crossing over fences, carry water with you and tend the grass wherever you may be. Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits. Energy and persistence conquer all things. One cannot govern with buts. When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die. People are not remembered by how few times they fail but by how often they succeed. Every wrong step is another step forward.
