Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.
A good job is more than just a paycheck. A good job fosters independence and discipline, and contributes to the health of the community. A good job is a means to provide for the health and welfare of your family, to own a home, and save for retirement.
James H. Douglas, Jr.
'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Alfred Lord Tennyson

I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.
Saint Teresa of Avila

E. O. Wilson
Martin Luther King, Jr.
