Charles Kingsley

"Love God in front of others, and love others in front of God."

"The most self-destructive thought that any person can have is thinking that he or she is not in total control of his or her life. That's when, 'Why me?' becomes a theme song."

"Never neglect the little things. Never skimp on that extra effort, that additional few minutes, that soft word of praise or thanks, that delivery of the very best that you can do. It does not matter what others think, it is of prime importance, however, what you think about you. You can never do your best, which should always be your trademark, if you are cutting corners and shirking responsibilities. You are special. Act it. Never neglect the little things."


Og Mandino, 1923-1996

"I will greet this day with love in my heart. For this is the greatest secret of success in all ventures. Muscles can split a shield and even destroy life itself but only the unseen power of love can open the hearts of man. And until I master this act I will remain no more than a peddler in the marketplace. I will make love my greatest weapon and none on who I call can defend upon its force... my love will melt all hearts liken to the sun whose rays soften the coldest day."

Og Mandino

Geoffry F. Abert

"Love God in front of others, and love others in front of God."

"The most self-destructive thought that any person can have is thinking that he or she is not in total control of his or her life. That's when, 'Why me?' becomes a theme song."

"Kindness is the language that the blind can see and the deaf can hear."

Found this poem this morning while searching for some motivation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Anything is Possible
By Unknown

If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily...
but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
HAVE FUN.
DIG DEEP.
STRETCH.
DREAM BIG.

Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits.
Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

PERSIST.
Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.

TRUST.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.


Og Mandino, 1923-1996

"failures are signposts on the way to achievement" emoticon

your chances of success in any undertaking can always be measured by your belief in yourself

When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust in him fully and let go, 1 of 2 things will happen, either he will catch you when you fall, or he will teach you how to fly!

Oh, I love quotes.

“There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.” – Buddha

“Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength.” – Unknown

“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'” – Mary Anne Radmacher

And it's so clichéd, but I love it... Actually, I like a lot of Nietzsche quotes. So here are some...

“That which does not kill me makes me stronger.” - Friederich Nietzsche

“A thought, even a possibility, can shatter and transform us” - Nietzsche

“He who has a why can endure any how” - Nietzsche

“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking” - Nietzsche

“Believe me! The secret of reaping the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment from life is to live dangerously!” - Nietzsche

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” - Nietzsche

And here's one about running I found...

“Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'” - Peter Maher, Irish-Canadian Olympian and sub-2:12 marathoner

He who has a why can endure any how - Nietzsche

those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. - Isaiah 40:31

The greatest pleasure in life, is doing the things people say we cannot do. - Walter Bagehot

Champions aren't made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them;a desire, a dream, a vision.

Any change, any loss, does not make us victims. Others can shake you, surprise you, disappoint you, but they can’t prevent you from acting, from taking the situation you’re presented with and moving on. No matter where you are in life, no matter what your situation, you can always do something. You always have a choice and the choice can be power.

What distinguishes those of us at the starting line from those of us on the couch is that we learn through running to take what the days gives us, what our body will allow us, and what our will can tolerate.

"Most of us miss out on life's big prizes. The Pulitzer. The Nobel. Oscars. Tonys. Emmys. But we're all eligible for life's small pleasures. A pat on the back. A kiss behind the ear. A four-pound bass. A full moon. An empty parking space. A crackling fire. A great meal. A glorious sunset. Hot soup. Cold beer. Don't fret about copping life's grand awards. Enjoy its tiny delights. There are plenty for all of us."

My whole feeling in terms of racing is that you have to be very bold. You sometimes have to be aggressive and gamble.

Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished; if you're alive, it isn't.

So, if you still have breath in your body, you have a mission to accomplish!

Your body is an amazingly adaptive machine. Ask it to be stronger and stronger you will be. Challenge it to go further and further you will go. Coax it to be more limber and more limber it will be. Allow it to mold into the seat of a recliner and, you got it, a recliner seat it will become. Stretch it, push it, pull it; your body is like cellular Play-Doh waiting for you to be the sculptor.

Winning has nothing to do with racing. Most days don't have races anyway. Winning is about struggle and effort and optimism, and never, ever, ever giving up.
