Powerful Words to Live By

"You really don't understand something until you can explain it to your grandmother." - Albert Einstein

"I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent." - Mohandas K. Gandhi

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." - Aristotle

"The world bestows its big prizes, both in money and honors, for but one thing. and that is Initiative. What is Initiative? I'll tell you: It is doing the right thing without being told." - Elbert Hubbard

"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood. Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause - who at best, if he wins knows the thrills of high achievement and if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

  1. “The Four Agreements

  2. 1. Be impeccable with your word.

       - Miguel Ruiz

THINK DIFFERENT“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
