I know the price of success: dedication, hard work,
and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.

Don't aim at success.
The more you aim at it and make it a target,
the more you are going to miss it.

it must ensue, and it only does so as
the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication
to a cause greater than oneself.
- Viktor E. Frankl

Living in the present moment requires discretion toward memory.

with a broad spectrum of forgiveness.
As for our present moment, delight.

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.

Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour
when every one has to throw off his mask?
Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked?
Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight
in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it?
I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others
that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...
In every man there is something which to a certain degree
prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself;
and this may be the case in so high a degree,
he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.
- Soren Kierkegaard

If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win, but think you can't

But soon or late the man who wins is the one who thinks he can.
- Anonymous

almost everyone gets busy on the proof.

something is missing in his or her humanity.
A person can almost be defined by
his or her attitude toward gratitude.
- Elie Wiesel

Consider being more acceptive of your partner's behaviors.
It is unlikely that they are intentionally aggravating you.
Almost always, they are just doing what they think they should do.
Try setting aside your own rules for how they should behave,
and adopt a live-and-let-live attitude.
Your relationship will become stronger and happier if you do.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Pray for the angry,
but express your prayers and intentions silently.
Saying openly to an angry person,
"I pray for you to receive inner-peace."
is almost certain to provoke an even angrier reaction.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Anger is something that each one of us has experienced -
some of us only occasionally, some almost daily.
Can we eliminate all anger? Probably not.
We will always have expectations,
and those expectations will often be unmet.
Disappointment is the principle cause of anger.
When we are disappointed, we look for someone to blame.
Declaring someone to be at fault is the nature of anger.
Anger is always directed at someone -
possibly toward God or the non-specific "they,"
but at some animate entity.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition.
The immature mind often mistakes one for the other,

one emotion hardly leaves room for the other.
Both at once can produce unbearable turmoil.
- Robert Heinlein

Everywhere I look, I see the evidence of a creator.
But I don't see it as religion,

Religion to me is almost like when God leaves -
and people devise a set of rules to fill the space.
- Bono

In war you can only be killed once, but in politics many times.

When you are winning a war
almost everything that happens
can be claimed to be right and wise.
- Winston Churchill

People who want to share their religious views with you
almost never want you to share yours with them.
- Dave Barry

Almost any sect, cult, or religion will
legislate its creed into law
if it acquires the political power.
- Robert A. Heinlein

The urge to save humanity is almost always
a false front for the urge to rule.

Getting divorced just because you don't love a man
is almost as silly as getting married just because you do.

In religion and politics, people's belief's and convictions
are in almost every case gotten at second hand,
and without examination

Probably the happiest period in life
most frequently is in middle age,
when the eager passions of youth are cooled,
and the infirmities of age not yet begun;
as we see that the shadows,
which are at morning and evening so large,
almost entirely disappear at midday.
- Eleanor Roosevelt

If men can develop weapons that are so terrifying
as to make the thought of global war
include almost a sentence for suicide,

would include also his ability to find a peaceful solution.

or because they are afraid it might be true.

It is a truism that almost any sect, cult, or religion
will legislate its creed into law
if it acquires the political power to do so,
and will follow it by suppressing opposition,
subverting all education to seize early the minds of the young,
and by killing, locking up, or driving underground all heretics.
- Robert Heinlein

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, Begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it, Begin it now.

This day boldness is manifested in a simple grace: gratitude.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

Bold Light of Spirit:
Out of the darkness and into the light,
Open our eyes and behold such a sight.
Brilliance of day takes the place of the night,
Boldness and courage are swords of His Might.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Fix reason firmly in her seat,
and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion.
Question with boldness even the existence of a God;
because, if there be one,
he must more approve of the homage of reason,
than that of blindfolded fear.
- Thomas Jefferson

Question with boldness even the existence of a God;

Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair."
Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be.

is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence.

Our only path to happiness lies in being open
to receiving whatever life throws at us -
with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

One cannot have a mind that is empty of all thoughts,
