After a storm comes a calm.

Epictetus

Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
Aristotle

Crave for a thing, you will get it. Renounce the craving, the object will follow you by itself.
Swami Sivananda

Never, never, never give up.

Excellent quotes.
I agree with Epictetus. But it is not always possible, even in families there are some negative sourpuss people that sometimes has to be included.
The Aristotle quote rings a bell, I wish the auto companies would follow that quote, in their quality control, then we would not have recall after recall after recall.
And having said all that, I agree with Churchill.(and lilo)
Thanks Don.

Wonderful quotes, but I must say I gave up Friday, when after the fifth time of trying to log on. I did not get anywhere with the Garden Party.
