FAILURE IS NOT THE FALLING DOWN BUT THE STAYING DOWN.

PERHAPS WE WOULD DO WELL TO SEE ALL OF OUR PROBLEMS AS PREPARATION FOR GUIDING SOMEONE WHO WILL COME INTO OUR LIFE.

PREJUDGING SOMEONE SHOWS A LACK OF SINCERITY IN OUR OWN MAKEUP - MAYBE EVEN INSECURITY THAT MAKES US SEE IN OTHERS WHAT WE ARE AFRAID OF FINDING IN OURSELVES.

COMMITMENT IS WHAT TRANSFORMS A PROMISE INTO A REALITY. IT IS THE WORDS THAT SPEAK BOLDLY OF YOUR INTENTIONS. AND THE ACTIONS WHICH SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS. IT IS MAKING TIME WHEN THERE IS NONE, COMING THROUGH TIME AFTER TIME, YEAR AFTER YEAR.

COMMITMENT IS THE STUFF CHARACTER IS MADE OF, THE POWER TO CHANGE THE FACE OF THINGS. IT IS THE DAILY TRIUMPH OF INTEGRITY OVER SKEPTICISM.

WE MUST GROW STRONG IN OUR ADVERSITY'S - EVERY HARDSHIP HAS WITHIN IT THE SEEDS OF GREAT OPPORTUNITY - OUR STRENGTH GROWS OUT OF OUR WEAKNESS. WHEN WE SIT ON THE CUSHION OF ADVANTAGES WE TEND TO GO TO SLEEP. WE WE ARE PUSHED, TORMENTED AND DEFEATED, WE HAVE A CHANCE TO LEARN. '"HARDSHIPS ", AS LINCOLN EXPRESSED IT, " ARE TOO PRECIOUS TO LOSE."
