Quotes of the day... 7/14/15

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, 
so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. 
To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. 
To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over 
the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
     ~ Henry David Thoreau

There are but two powers in the world, 
the sword and the mind. 
In the long run the sword 
is always beaten by the mind.
     ~ Napoléon Bonaparte

Start with the end in mind.
     ~ Stephen R. Covey

Quotes of the day... 7/13/15

The environment is where we all meet; 
where we all have a mutual interest; 
it is the one thing that all of us share. 
It is not only a mirror of ourselves, 
but a focusing lens on what we can become...”
     ~ Lady Bird Johnson 

While the spirit of neighborliness 
was important on the frontier because 
neighbors were so few, it is even more important 
now because neighbors are so many.
     ~ Lady Bird Johnson
