Thoughts that make us think

Okay,there is a lot to be learned from a few words. Read carefully.

Christy Mathewson: You can learn little from victory. You can learn everything from defeat.

Michael Jordon: I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life, and that is why I succeed.

Johnny Cash: You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistake, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.

Tom Clancy: Nothing is as real as a dream. the world can change around you, but your dream will not. Responsibilities need not erase it. Duties need not obscure it. Because the dream is within you, no one can take it away.

Leonard Bernstein: To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan and not quite enough time.

Now, from the mouth of Yogi Berra

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
Never answer an anonymous letter.
A nickel ain't worth a dime.
You can observe a lot by watching.
It ain't over til it's over.

Have you noticed that even Yogi's twists of logic carry wisdom?

Well, that's all for today. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day.
