Spend some time this weekend on home improvement; improve your attitude toward your family.
I have an almost complete disregard of precedent, and a faith in the possibility of something better. It irritates me to be told how things have always been done. I defy the tyranny of precedent. I go for anything new that might improve the past.
We have to be bold in our national ambitions. First, we must win the fight against poverty within the next decade.

For the first time, they were taken seriously as artists, musicians, writers, athletes, and as political thinkers.
The only way to win tournaments is with the short game. Over half your shots out here are within 30 or 40 yards. Ballstriking is where I'm trying to improve, yes, but more to eliminate big numbers than make birdies.
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
E. B. White

As a tennis player, you have to get used to losing every week. Unless you win the tournament, you always go home as a loser. But you have to take the positive out of a defeat and go back to work. Improve to fail better.

Our lives improve only when we take chances - and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.
