Explore the value of Preparation
Franklin D. Roosevelt
To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.
Sir Winston Churchill
I believe luck is preparation meeting opportunity. If you hadn’t been prepared when the opportunity came along, you wouldn’t have been lucky.
Good parents give their children Roots and Wings. Roots to know where home is, Wings to fly away and exercise what's been taught them.
Dr. Jonas Salk
For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.
Rainer Maria Rilke
It's not the will to win that matters-everyone has that. It's the will to prepare to win that matters.
Paul "Bear" Bryant
It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared.
Whitney M. Young, Jr.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
It takes a noble man to plant a seed for a tree that will some day give shade to people he may never meet.

A vida é uma caixa de surpresa, com preparação nada é fácil, sem ela menos ainda. Life is a box of surprise, nothing is easy to prepare, without her even less.
Anderson, Colatina-ES, Brasil
For me, preparation is a series of habits . A habit of checking everything, shoes tied, pen in pocket, cell phone and web book charged... that sort of thing. Those habits allow me to leave the house knowing that whatever may befall me, I am as prepared as may be to face it. Preparation is being honest with ones self about what the worst may be, learning how to counter the worst and setting habits to meet those possibilities which allows one to move on into the day with a clear mind, and work towards the best.
David Caines, Easton, PA
Preparation. For a procrastinator, I will.
