Laozi / Lao-Tzu – Be careful what you water your dreams with

Share this quote:
Lao TzuBe careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.

Laozi / Lao-Tzu   (604 BC-531 BC)

Earl Nightingale – A great attitude does much more. . .

Share this quote:
A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.

Dean Alfange – What it means to be an American

Share this quote:
Dean AlfangeI do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon — if I can. I seek opportunity — not security. I do not wish to be a citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations, and to face the world boldly and say, this I have done. All this is what it means to be an American.

Dean Alfange   (1897-1989)
