Bryant H. McGill

You must accept that you might fail; then, if you do your best and still don't win, at least you can be satisfied that you've tried. If you don't accept failure as a possibility, you don't set high goals, you don't branch out, you don't try - you don't take the risk.
We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.

I don't know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot.
No man ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock his competitors. The sensible worker does not work those who work with him. Don't knock your friends. Don't knock your enemies. Don't knock yourself.
Alfred Lord Tennyson

John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
