Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home... it's your responsibility to love it, or change it.
George L. Bell
A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.

Abbie M. Dale
