and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe

When does a belief hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?

as you can bring to the subject.

that represent your parents' opinions,
or your communities opinions, rather than your own.
Those beliefs that withstand rigorous testing,
should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The greatest battle of all is simply... Life.
This is no child's game. This is the big one -
the Super Bowl - the Game of all games.

The Judge has ultimate power.
She can call the game at any time - for any reason.
The penalties in the Game are completely arbitrary -
in both timing and severity.
Penalty for what, we ask?
The Judge is silent.
How can I win the Game?
"You can never win," comes the answer,
"So just take pleasure in playing the Game."
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

are all so improbable.

the greatest fear of humankind,
and death the greatest unknown.

is a powerful beginning.

lies in living in the moment -
enjoying what you are doing today.
You don't need a reason to be happy,
just a choice.
