FOOD FOR THOUGHT

A WINNER never quits, a QUITTER never wins. It takes COURAGE to push yourself to places you've never been before, to test your limits, to break though barriers. Take PRIDE in how far you've come. Have FAITH in how far you can go. Seek first to UNDERSTAND, before being UNDERSTOOD. You don't have to have the lead, if you have courage to come from behind. All things are difficult before they are easy. Go the distance, nothing stops determination. Victory begins in the heart. Build bridges instead of walls and you will have a friend.
