Recent Past "Quotes of the Day"
Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths.
When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
"The way a team plays as a whole determines its success.
You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world,
but if they don't play together, the club won't be worth a dime."
George Herman Ruth
In times of great stress or adversity, it's always best to keep busy,
to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.
"THE GREATER THE DIFFICULTY, THE GREATER THE GLORY"
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Carry the battle to them.
Don't let them bring it to you.
Put them on the defensive and
don't ever apologize for anything.
Harry S. Truman
Far better is it to dare mighty things,
to win glorious triumphs,
even though checkered by failure...
than to rank with those poor spirits
who neither enjoy nor suffer much,
because they live in a gray twilight
that knows not victory nor defeat.
The battlefield is a scene of constant chaos.
The winner will be the one who controls the chaos,
both his own and his enemies.
