We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.


Charles Buxton

Experience shows that success is due less to ability than to zeal.

Colin Powell

There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.

Colin Powell2016-03-03T20:22:19-06:00


To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.


Francis Fernandez

Sadness debilitates us. It is like the heavy clay accumulating on the boots of a walker which, as well as befouling them, makes each step more difficult for him.

Francis Fernandez

The experience of what pleases or displeases me, or of what helps or hurts me, is a good measure of the things I ought to do or avoid in my relationships with others.

Gregory & Lisa Popcak

…unless a couple is at least fives times more complimentary, affectionate, supportive, and encouraging as they are critical, nagging, and confrontational, their rapport will deteriorate until it ceases to exist.

Gregory & Lisa Popcak

Good discipline begins with good rapport, which means that there should be a minimum 5:1 ratio (and ideally, a 20:1 ratio) of positive-to-negative interactions between parents and children.

Gregory the Great

An army chief on the battlefield has more respect for the soldier who, having once given way to flight, returns and attacks the enemy bravely than for the soldier who never turned tail, but neither ever performed any act of valor.

Harry Truman

It is amazing what you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit.

J.M. Mason

A zealous soul without meekness is like a ship in a storm, in danger of wrecks. A meek soul without zeal, is like a ship in a calm, that moves not so fast as it ought.

Character is forged not on the mountaintop but in the valley.

You now begin. But this is ongoing. You begin again, and again and again. You never give up. Nunc Coepi.

Philip Rivers

Identify what is valuable to you, then prepare and plan to protect it.

Philip Rivers

Don’t worry… What good is anxiety about the future? Does it bring you anything but trouble upon trouble? It is foolish and useless to be either grieved or happy about future things which perhaps may never happen.

Philip Rivers2016-03-06T20:26:45-06:00

Philip Rivers

I can make two guarantees to you today. First, your time on earth will end. Second, you will be remembered for something…how do you want to be remembered?

Ray Bradbury

You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.
