“Fine animal gorilla.”
~ Koko, the talking gorilla
“Choose your leaders
with wisdom and forethought.
To be led by a coward is to be controlled
by all that the coward fears.
To be led by a fool is to be led
by the opportunists who control the fool.
To be led by a thief is to offer up
your most precious treasures to be stolen.
To be led by a liar is to ask to be lied to.
To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself
and those you love into slavery.”
~ Octavia Butler
“Summer is the time
when one sheds one’s tensions with one’s clothes,
and the right kind of day
is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.
A few of those days
and you can become drunk with the belief
that all’s right with the world.”
~ Ada Louise Huxtable
“Never forget where you’ve been.
Never lose sight of where you’re going.
And never take for granted the people
who travel the journey with you.”
~ Susan Gale
You have $86,400 in your account.
Someone stole $10 from you.
Would you be upset
and throw all of the $86,390 away in hopes
of getting back at the person
that took your $10?
Or move on and live?
Right, move on and live.
we have 86,400 seconds in every day
so don’t let someone’s negative 10 seconds
ruin the rest of the 86,390.
but allow yourself the opportunity to start small,
and have your share of struggles in the beginning.
The world’s greatest composers weren’t writing symphonies
the day they first sat at a piano.”
~ Kevin O’Rourke
