One of the highlights of my evening is always to receive this summary of "thoughts" from Jonathan Lockwood Huie. This is one of the most timely and notable ones of all about the need to overcome obstacles no matter what.
If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
- Michael Jordan
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, Begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it, Begin it now.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
It doesn't matter if you try and try and try again, and fail. It does matter if you try and fail,
and fail to try again.
- Charles Kettering
Believe in yourself. Have faith in your abilities.
Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers
you cannot be successful or happy.
- Norman Vincent Peale
