Quote of the Day

Never give up on your dream... because you never know what the Lord can bless you with.
You can't please everyone. When you're too focused on living up to other people's standards, you aren't spending enough time raising your own. Some people may whisper, complain and judge. But for the most part, it's all in your head. People care less about your actions than you think. Why? They have their own problems!
If someone decides they're not going to be happy, it's not your problem. You don't have to spend your time and energy trying to cheer up someone who has already decided to stay in a bad mood. Believe it or not, you can actually hurt people by playing into their self-pity.
Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Don't give up. Don't lose hope. Don't sell out.
The Holocaust, taken by itself, is a black hole. To look at it directly is to be swallowed up by it.
I pray to be a good servant to God, a father, a husband, a son, a friend, a brother, an uncle, a good neighbor, a good leader to those who look up to me, a good follower to those who are serving God and doing the right thing.
It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.
I remember there were days when - and this is kind of gross - I would sleep in my uniform to save time in the morning and then get up and go to school... it didn't matter because I didn't have to impress anyone, and I didn't have to look cute in class.
When I woke up this morning my girlfriend asked me, 'Did you sleep good?' I said 'No, I made a few mistakes.'
Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.
I have been up against tough competition all my life. I wouldn't know how to get along without it.
What goes up must come down.
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.
If you really believe in what you're doing, work hard, take nothing personally and if something blocks one route, find another. Never give up.
At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.
I wake up some mornings and sit and have my coffee and look out at my beautiful garden, and I go, 'Remember how good this is. Because you can lose it.'
I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex, and rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself.
Hope is the pillar that holds up the world. Hope is the dream of a waking man.
Pliny the Elder
The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter - for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way.
Cute is when a person's personality shines through their looks. Like in the way they walk, every time you see them you just want to run up and hug them.
We have to be able to grow up. Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life. They are what we have been through and who we want to be.
Acting deals with very delicate emotions. It is not putting up a mask. Each time an actor acts he does not hide; he exposes himself.
If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.
H. G. Wells
My dream is to have a house on the beach, even just a little shack somewhere so I can wake up, have coffee, look at dolphins, be quiet and breathe the air.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
