Food For Thought

Words that inspire me. Words that encourage me. Words that I aspire to live by daily.

"Be forgiving to a fault." Les Brown

"If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together." African Proverb

"Often people attempt to live their lives backwards: they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want so they will be happier.

"Excellence is commitment to completion!" Bob Proctor

"And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." Galatians 6:9
