" Life can hit hard. Sometimes you get knocked down when you don't even see it coming. Some are cheap shots, some are glancing blows and some can bring you to your knees. When this happens, it's not about how hard you get hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, but still find the strength to keep moving forward. It's about having the will to continue in spite of the obstacles."

" For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something."

" Thou shall always speak in a respectful tone when around strangers; sometimes some strangers are God's angels in human form that are sent from above to assist us in time of difficulty, but leave us to act on our own because we behave in obscene manners. In other words, respect is a universal key; your respect will unlock every locked door."

" Whatever may be falsely fixed in our mind as too late to heal is the surest sign that the quality of today's beginning is sufficient to free you of regret. A single stone slung in love killed one big lie and set many free. In short, Goliath was a mere distraction."
