Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose.  Nobody goes undefeated all the time.  If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday.

– Wilma Rudolph

I believe that we are who we choose to be.  Nobody is going to come and save you.  You’ve got to save yourself.  Nobody is going to give you anything.  You’ve got to go out and fight for it.  Nobody knows what you want except you, and nobody will be as sorry as you if you don’t get it.  So don’t give up on your dreams.

Barry Manilow, Sweet Life:  Adventures on the Way to Paradise

It may be said that, so far from having a materialistic tendency, the supposed introduction into the earth at successive geological periods of life — sensation, instinct, the intelligence of the higher mammalia bordering on reason, and lastly, the improvable reason of Man himself — presents us with a picture of the ever-increasing dominion of mind over matter.

— Sir Charles Lyell, 1863

Quote for Today: If You Control A Man’s Thinking

If you can control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his action. When you determine what a man shall think you do not have to concern yourself about what he will do. If you make a man feel that he is inferior, you do not have to compel him to accept an inferior status, for he will seek it himself. If you make a man think that he is justly an outcast, you do not have to order him to the back door. He will go without being told; and if there is no back door, his very nature will demand one.                     ~Carter G. Woodson
