“It’s not easy to pledge yourself to a cause.
Duty is like armor.
It’s heavy, and it’s not always comfortable.
It’s a promise to yourself to do what’s right.
When your courage is tested, remain calm.
Remember why you started.
Then run as fast as you can toward the fight,
knowing that no matter how it ends,
you’ve stayed true to your cause and yourself.
Loyalty and bravery, combined,
are greater than any super-power.”
~ Pamela Bobowicz
“When we long for life without difficulties,
remind us that oaks grow strong
in contrary winds
and diamonds are made under pressure.”
~ Peter Marshall
“My father gave me the greatest gift
anyone could give another person,
he believed in me.”
~ Jim Valvano
:We’re not going back to the good old days.
They weren’t so good for my people.”
~ John Barrett, voter
“When they discover
the center of the universe,
a lot of people will be disappointed
they are not it.”
“Once in a while,
you get shown the light
in the strangest places,
if you look at it right.”
“We are the same.
There is no difference
anywhere in the world.
People are people.
They laugh, cry, feel and love,
and music seems to be
the common denomination
that brings us all together.
Music cuts through all boundaries
and goes right to the soul.”
~ Willie Nelson more
