7 SHORT THOUGHTS FOR THE WEEK AHEAD
1. Greatness is your potential – action is your opportunity
2. He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass
3. Say little but say it well
4. There are some things you learn best in calm and some in storm
5. Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not
6. If you can’t be a good example – be a horrible warning
7. It’s not the load that breaks you down – it’s the way you carry it.
