Achievement of your happiness is the only moral purpose of your life, and that happiness, not pain or mindless self-indulgence, is the proof of your moral integrity, since it is the proof and the result of your loyalty to the achievement of your values.
If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.
Sir Winston Churchill
Be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life's a great balancing act. And will you succeed? Yes! you will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed). Kid, you'll move mountains.
Theodor Seuss Geisel
To be rich in admiration and free from envy, to rejoice greatly in the good of others, to love with such generosity of heart that your love is still a dear possession in absence or unkindness - these are the gifts which money cannot buy.

You measure the size of the accomplishment by the obstacles you had to overcome to reach your goals!

I love these quotes! They help inspire me to do my best every day. Self-talk and positive affirmation is key to success.
"Winning here is a conscious decision. Make up your mind whether you want to pass - or choose to fail."
Great quote from the movie "Lone Survivor".
FREEDOM FROM SELF TOARMENT IS FREEDOM WHAT WAS TRUELY HOW ONE'SSELF IS MENT TO BE~
STUART D MAYES, LOUISVILLE KY
In 1955, Mr. Jim Huxel, the Principal of my school, pulled me out of the classroom and into his office wherein he gave me swats with a wood panel. I asked him Why me. There were other kids goofing around. Why did you pull only me out of the class.He said, "Because you are smart, you have talent, you can make it - I care about you. Stop goofing around and apply yourself and you will be successful.
I walked out of his office with a very sore butt however, I felt fantastic. Someone cares about me, someone thinks I have talent. Ï can do it - Mr. Huxel said so --- and he was right.

Nice site! Need more of it.
I don't see that achievement is the word success. sometimes things are no longer achievable. Achievement is a hope for me. To continue doing things even though it looks not achievable in time but still there's hope,its still success and achievement. It transcends the mere evidences in life.

I try to do my best to steer young people in the right direction. Some of them don't want to even hear what I am trying to tell them so I go to others and am happy if one of them listens. I would be a happy camper if I could reach more young people.

In Maaori, the native tongue of New Zealand, the word for values is 'pumanawa'. Pu = centre, core, cause, stump, heart, foundation. Manawa = heart. As you know, we all live out of our values, whether good or bad. Those that are contrary to being 'tika' or 'true', manifest through emotional pain and destructive behaviours. These values are sown into us at an early age and eventually bear fruit. The fruit tree is an excellent picture of this. As David Riddell (top counsellor and creator of the 'School of Living Wisdom') says, if we don't check the foundations, we cannot affect the repairs. Noho ora mai
