I have something to say...

Don't be afraid of hard work.
It often takes a lot 
of time and hard work
to get what you want. 

that we had four children
by the time we bought our first house.
Then, we moved again 
and had to rent, again.
Then, we worked some more 
and then we bought a tiny 3 bedroom house 
(with four children).
Then, we moved again
had to wait some more
then, we finally moved into the house we have now.
We will have our 25th wedding anniversary 
in 6 months
(and we aren't even close 
to having it all
having accomplished it all
having it all together).

It takes time
and a lot of hard work 
for all of it.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls
and looks like work.
~Thomas Edison

The only thing that ever sat its way to success
was a hen.
~Sarah Brown

No body drowned in his own sweat.
~Ann Landers

If a man is called a streetsweeper, 
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music,
or Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven
and Earth will pause to say,
Here lived a great streetsweeper 
who did his job well.
~Martin Luther King, Jr.

Man stands for long time 
with mouth open before roast duck flies in.
~Chinese Saying

Doors don't slam open.
~John M. Shanahan

(The) dictionary is the only place 
that success comes before work.
Hard work is the price we must pay for success.
I think you can accomplish anything
if you're willing to pay the price.
~Vince Lombardi
