After a storm comes a calm.
Matthew Henry

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.
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.
