In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized.

off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain

The shy man usually finds that he has been shy without cause, and that, in practice, no one takes the slightest notice of
him. Robert Lynd
We are all creations of God, all of our thoughts are Gods, if God did not want man to create, God would not have given us
the ability or desire to create.

history, controlling our own destiny without giving way to blind suspicions and emotions.

whole of nature and its beauty Albert Einstein

Here is the prime condition of success: Concentrate your energy, thought and capital exclusively upon the
business in which you are engaged. Having begun on one line, resolve to fight it out on that line, to lead in it, adopt every improvement, have the best machinery, and know the most about. Andrew Carnegie
If we do everything that we are capable of we would truly astound ourselves. -
each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be

"The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It
is this, always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed upon my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod,
"Trials, temptations, disappointments -- all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly. They not
only test the fibre of a character, but strengthen it. Every conquered temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before." --
"A belief is
