Inspirational Thoughts

Integrity

It is not what we eat
but what we digest
that makes us strong;
not what we gain
but what we save
that make us rich;
not what we read
but what we remember
that makes us learned;
and not what we profess
but what we practice
that gives us Integrity.
- Anonymous

Success

Success is getting what you want;
happiness is wanting what you get.
- Anonymous

Power

Being powerful is like being a lady.
If you have to tell people you are,
you aren't.
- Margaret Thatcher

Enthusiasm

Enthusiasm - is a reason gone mad to
achieve a definite, rational objective.

Enthusiasm is inflamed by opposition,
but never converted; it is the leaping
lightning that blasts obstacles from
its path.

Enthusiasm is the X-ray of the soul,
that penetrates and reveals the invisible.

Enthusiasm is a contagion that laughs
at quarantine and inoculates all who come
in contact with it.

Enthusiasm is the vibrant thrill in your
voice that sways the wills of others into
harmony with your own.

Enthusiasm is the "philosopher's stone"
that transmutes dull tasks into
delightful deeds.

Enthusiasm is a magnet that draws
kindred souls and with irresistible force
and electrifies them with the magnatism
of its own resolve.

Effort and rest

Can you stop the Earth from spinning? Can you stop the progression of
the seasons? As preposterous as it may sound, many people try, at least
with their own lives.

The Earth spins, and we have day and night. A time for effort, and a
time for rest. The slightly tilted Earth orbits the sun, and we have the
seasons of the year. A time for planting, for growing, for harvesting,
and for rest.

The cycle of effort and rest is deeply ingrained in the world around us,
and in us as well. A good night's sleep makes for a good day's work. And
a day full of effort, makes for a good night's sleep. Get too far off in
either direction -- work with no rest, or rest with no work -- and your
efforts become useless.

You cannot avoid the need for balance any more than you can stop the
Earth from spinning. Work hard, rest well, and enjoy the optimum
performance that comes from a well balanced life.
-- Ralph Marston
