Norman Vincent Peale
Success is steady progress toward one's personal goals.
Getting organized in the normal routines of life and finishing little projects you've started is an important first step toward realizing larger goals. If you can't get a handle on the small things, how will you ever get it together to focus on the big things?
Here in Russia,, in many cities, people are irritated by Caucasian intrusion. Caucasians come from foreign countries; they are ubiquitous: in markets, shops, hotels, restaurants.

A celibate clergy is an especially good idea, because it tends to suppress any hereditary propensity toward fanaticism.
