Champions are not the ones who always win races - champions are the ones who get out there and try. And try harder the next time. And even harder the next time. 'Champion' is a state of mind.

Theology is never any help; it is searching in a dark cellar at midnight for a black cat that isn't there. Theologians can persuade themselves of anything.
Robert A. Heinlein

Don't be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.
A man's natural rights are his own, against the whole world; and any infringement of them is equally a crime, whether committed by one man, or by millions; whether committed by one man, calling himself a robber, (or by any other name indicating his true character,) or by millions, calling themselves a government.

We live in a society of victimization, where people are much more comfortable being victimized than actually standing up for themselves.
Perfect partners don't exist. Perfect conditions exist for a limited time in which partnerships express themselves best.

James M. Barrie
People think that I'm mean because I'm quiet, and I don't really go out places or because I don't really say too much.
