It's almost Spring...

"The horizon is out there somewhere, 
and you just keep chasing it, 
looking for it, and working for it." 
~Bob Dole

"...the race is not [always] to the swift,
nor the battle to the strong..."
~Ecclesiastes 9:11

"What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight--
it's the size of the fight in the dog."
~General Dwight Eisenhower

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed 
is always to try just one more time."
~Thomas A. Edison

"The harder the conflict, 
the more glorious the triumph.
What we obtain too cheap,
we esteem too lightly;
it is dearness only that gives everything its value.
I love the man that can smile in trouble, 
that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection.
'Tis the business of little minds to shrink;
but he whose heart is firm,
and whose conscience approves his conduct, 
will pursue his principles unto death."
~Thomas Paine

"The miracle, or the power,
that elevates the few is to be found in their industry,
application, and perseverance 
under the prompting of a brave, determined spirit."
~Mark Twain

"Press on! A better fate awaits thee."
~Victor Hugo

Bring on spring weather! I'm ready for treehouse picnics (even if that includes crutches).
