QUOTATIONS I LIKE:
"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost." ~ Martha Graham . . .
"You must be the change you want to see in the world." ~ Mahatma Gandhi . . .
"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between church and State" ~ Thomas Jefferson . . .
"What would you do if you knew you could not fail?"

Proud descendant of people who dared to take a risk and go where they could see opportunity; who worked hard and believed they would make a better life; who refused to believe or act in any way unless it made sense to them; who found and celebrated good even in the worst of times; who gave of themselves to help those in need; who valued people and principle over possessions and position; who loved, accepted and supported family unconditonally; who never forgot that laughing drives away despair and prevents insanity; they taught me the meaning of "Yes We Can!" before I knew the phrase.
