You have to think of your career the way you look at the ocean, deciding which wave you're gonna take and which waves you're not gonna take.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
You that would judge me, do not judge alone this book or that, come to this hallowed place where my friends' portraits hang and look thereon; Ireland's history in their lineaments trace; think where man's glory most begins and ends and say my glory was I had such friends.
William Butler Yeats
When there is no peril in the fight there is no glory in the triumph.

It is indeed a desirable thing to be well-descended, but the glory belongs to our ancestors.
A season of suffering is a small assignment when compared to the reward. Rather than begrudge your problem, explore it. Ponder it. And most of all, use it. Use it to the glory of God.

The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, a time of pain and withdrawal that produces something joyfully inconceivable, like a monarch butterfly masterfully extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon, bursting forth into unexpected glory.
There is no greater glory than love, nor any greater punishment than jealousy.
Lope de Vega
The human bird shall take his first flight, filling the world with amazement, all writings with his fame, and bringing eternal glory to the nest whence he sprang.

God will use whatever he wants to display his glory. Heavens and stars. History and nations. People and problems.
One of my favorite things about working on 'Glory Daze' is getting to wear amazing '80s outfits coupled with fabulously over-the-top hair and makeup.

Henry Ward Beecher

Eisenhower,' in which he describes attending the Yankees' 154th game in 1961. The whole family had been following Mantle and Maris chase Babe Ruth's home run record across the country.
