"Failure is only postponed success...The habit of persistence is the habit of victory." -Herbert Kaufman
Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do." - Pope John XXIII

Two men died and went to heaven. One was a preacher and the other a taxi cab driver. St. Peter greeted them at the gate and took the cab driver to a beatiful large mansion, saying this was his new home.
The preacher thought to himself "Allright! If that cab driver got such a big reward, I wonder what I will get, being in the service of God all these years." However, St. Peter gave the preacher a hovel of a home. When the preacher asked why St. Peter said: "When you preached your sermons, people would fall asleep. But when this taxi cab driver drove people around San Francisco, they were really praying!"
There were three men who died and went to Heaven. St Peter greeted each of them at the gate. To the first man, he said
"When you were on Earth, you were a little too concerned about money. You stingy and saved everything you earned. You even went so far as to marry a woman named Penny."
To the next man in line, St Peter says "I don't know if I should let you in. When you were on Earth you were little too fond of alcohol. Your partied and drank too much. You even went so far as to marry a woman named Sherry."
The third guy after listening to the above conversations turns to his wife and says "Come on Fanny, let's go. We don't stand a chance."
