Heroes...Motivators...and Words I live by
From Left To Right....
Henry David Thoreau - (poet, naturalist)
"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives."
Vince Lombardi - (former coach of the green bay packers)
"I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious."
Ansel Adams - (naturalist, photographer)
"No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit."
Edmund Hillary - (first man to climb Mt Everest, humanitarian)
"People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things."
E.O. Wilson (naturalist, author)
"You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give."
These men and their beliefs...help to form who I am and what I believe....I strive to grasp a piece of each one of them in my daily pursuits...carpe diem...knowledge is power...amen.
