There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer; no disease that enough love will not heal; no door that enough love will not open; no gulf that enough love will not bridge; no wall that enough love will not throw down; no sin that enough love will not redeem... It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble; how hopeless the outlook; how muddled the tangle; how great the mistake. A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. If only you could love enough you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world... ~Emmet Fox~

If you aim for nothing, you WILL hit it. Progress is impossible without change: and those who cannot change their minds, cannot change anything. George Bernard Shaw. When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. Franklin D Roosevelt Men do less than they ought, unless they do all they can. Thomas Carlyle Whether you think you can, or you think you can't: you are right! Henry Ford

I have a theory about the human mind. A brain is a lot like a computer. It will only take so many facts, and then it will go into overload and blow up. Erma Bombeck Too many of us look upon Americans as dollar chasers. This is a cruel libel, even if it is reiterated thoughtlessly by the Americans themselves. Albert Einstein Young people are in a condition like permanent intoxication, because youth is sweet and they are growing. Aristotle An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest. Benjamin Franklin I don't want to achieve immortality through my work... I want to achieve it through not dying. Woody Allen These are just a few of my favorites. I have a long long long list. I've also enjoyed yours and those of the others. My list just keeps growing and growing.
