"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a
miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either
on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we
are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a
blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious
eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle."

Life & Work

"Don't ever confuse the two, your life and your work.
That's what I have to say. The second is only a part of
the first."

Some Other Place

"Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being until some future date."

~ Dale Carnegie ~

A Price to Pay

"Whatever you want in life,
you must give up something to get it.
The greater the value,
the greater the sacrifice required of you.
Everything has a price.
There's a price to pay if you want to make things better,
and a price to pay for just leaving things as they are.
Nothing worthwhile ever comes easily."

The Successful Person

"The successful person has the habit of doing the things failures don't like to do. They don't like doing them either necessarily. But their disliking is subordinated to the strength of their purpose."
