A Little Something ...
"People always say that I didn't give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn't true. I was not tired physically... No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in."
Rosa Parks
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."
Winston Churchill
"Never lose the childlike wonder. Show gratitude... Don't complain; just work harder... Never give up."
Randy Pausch
"Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savoured."
Earl Nightingale
