Accentuate Quotations

Delete the negative; accentuate the positive!
Donna Karan

But on average, I go to the gym about four or five times a week. Today, I'm so experienced in training - I'm actually listening to my body now. My body needs freedom.

Jean-Claude Van Damme

Gordon B. Hinckley

Stop being a critic and be a light; don't be a judge, be a model. I think we are far too critical.

Sean Covey
