We know that in everything God works for good with those
who love him, who are called according to his purpose. For
those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed
to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the first-born
among many brethren. And those whom he predestined he also
called; and those whom he called he also justified; and those
whom he justified he also glorified.

Romans 8:28-30
Holy Bible
Revised Standard Edition


Develop the mind of equilibrium.
You will always be getting praise and blame,
But do not let either affect the poise of the mind;
follow the calmness, the absence of pride.

Sutta Nipata


Failure is wasted is you return only to the place from where you fell.
If your plans fail, think bigger, aim higher.

From the wisdom of the Lubavitcher Rebbe;
words and condensation by Tzvi Freeman.

We are all broken and wounded in this world.
Some choose to grow strong at the broken places.

Harold J. Duarte-Bernhardt (1950-   )
Motivational speaker

Whatever you possess is the temporary material
of this life . What God possesses is far better and
everlasting, for those who believe and trust their Lord.

The Quran 42:36

When it is dark enough,
you can see the stars.

Our greatest glory is not
in never failing, but in rising
up every time we fail.

Both quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
American poet and writer


Just as a small fire is extinguished by the storm
whereas a large fire is enhanced by it ---
likewise a weak faith is weakened by predicament
and catastrophes whereas a strong faith is strengthened by them.

Viktor E. Frankl (1905-1997)
Austrian psychiatrist and neurologist


Prayer is the most powerful means of overcoming any
kind of discouragement. It connects you with an
omnipotent, omniscient Father who loves you
unconditionally, who sees where you are and is
going to help you in it.

Charles Stanley



And now the Last Word:

Remember your dreams and fight for them.

You must know what you want from life. There

is just one thing that makes your dream become

impossible: the fear of failure. Never forget your

Personal Legend. Never forget your dreams. Your

silent heart will guide you. Be silent now. It is the

possibility of a dream that makes life interesting.

You can choose between being a victim of destiny

or an adventurer who is fighting for something


Paolo Coelho  (1947-  )
Brazilian lyricist and novelist
Author of "The Alchemist"

When you encounter difficulties and contradictions,
