Walter Scott

Arise! Awake! and stop not until the goal is reached.
Swami Vivekananda

Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.
Charles Stanley

I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake.
Lewis Black
