“In war, the soldier who moves back 50 steps has no right to laugh at the one who moves back 100 steps.” – Chinese Saying
You get whatever accomplishment you are willing to declare.
I love the name of honor, more than I fear death.
Celestial spirit that doth roll
The heart’s sepulchral stone away,
Be this our resurrection day,
The singing Easter of the soul –
O gentle Master of the Wise,
Teach us to say: “I will arise.”
~Richard Le Gallienne
“The saints are the sinners who keep on trying.”
**Robert Louis Stevenson
