One hundred years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, how big my house was, or what kind of car I drove. But the world may be a little better, because I was important in the life of a child.
Courage is often misconstrued as the absence of fear, which it is not. Courage is rather a total mastery of fear. It's the Courage that takes away the fear to make mistakes and deepest fear to fail. Courage is never a roaring beast as pictured many a times - but in my view, it's a wonderful, quiet and tiny singing bird that whispers softly and gently in your ears: "You'll do it again tomorrow! You'll make it happen!" during the darkest moments of life, when you are all alone. Never lose that beautiful and precious singing bird.

A man with a half volition goes backwards and forwards, and makes no way on the smoothest road a man with a whole volition advances on the roughest, and will reach his purpose, if there be even a little worthiness in it. The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder - a waif, a nothing, a no man. Have a purpose in life and having it, throw such strength of mind and muscle into your work as God has given you.
