First comes thought; then organization of that thought, into ideas and plans; then transformation of those plans into reality. The beginning, as you will observe, is in your imagination.
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
Ask, and it will be given to you; Seek, and you will find; Knock, and it will be opened to you.
Jesus (Luke 11)
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.
Everybody can be great because anybody can serve….You only need a heart full of grace and soul generated by love.
Martin Luther King
Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.
Martin Luther King Jr.

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can can start from now and make a brand new ending.
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark. The real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

Michael W. Smith
Peace begins with a smile.
I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.
If you don’t do it excellently, don’t do it at all. Because if it’s not excellent, it won’t be profitable or fun, and if you’re not in business for fun or profit, what the hell are you doing there?
Outstanding leaders appeal to the hearts of their followers – not their minds.
CHANGE. One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. Whether it’s guilt, anger, love, loss or betrayal. Change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go.
One song can change a moment, one idea can change a world, one step can start a journey, but a PRAYER can change the impossible.
Some people have reach the highest branch to see it’s the wrong tree.
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between 2 “wolves” inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
Practice is the hardest part of learning, and training is the essence of transformation.
When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can’t make them change if they don’t want to, just like when they do want to, you can’t stop them.
