Thought for the Week: Promises mean everything, but after they are broken, sorry means nothing.


A little more persistence, a little more effort, and what seemed a hopeless failure may turn to glorious success. The bitter and the sweet come from the outside, the hard from within, from one’s own efforts.

Great effort springs naturally from great attitude. The mode by which the inevitable comes to pass is effort. Strength and growth comes only through continuous effort and struggle.
