"The destination is not where we end, but where we begin again."

"Now, if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." (George Patton)

"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start." (John Bingham)

"A tree with strong roots can withstand the most violent storm. But a tree cannot grow roots just as the storm appears on the horizon." (HH - the Dalai Lama)
