So many times, people told me I can't do this or can't do that. My nature is that I don't listen very well. I'm very determined, and I believe in myself. My parents brought me up that way. Thank God for that. I don't let anything stand in my way.

B. B. King

Every man, every woman who has to take up the service of government, must ask themselves two questions: 'Do I love my people in order to serve them better?

Jacqueline MacInnes Wood

You'll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart.
Together with a culture of work, there must be a culture of leisure as gratification. To put it another way: people who work must take the time to relax, to be with their families, to enjoy themselves, read, listen to music, play a sport.
Listen with the intent to understand, not the intent to reply.
Don't quit. Never give up trying to build the world you can see, even if others can't see it. Listen to your drum and your drum only. It's the one that makes the sweetest sound.
