While I'm pondering the two days with our children, Josh and Mimi, their spouses, Tim and Cathy, and our four granddaughters, I wanted to share some of the quotes from my Mastery Foundation quotes box.

Some of them make my smile. Some make me ponder. They are all pretty short and deserve being thought about and being with them.

"Everyone wants to be on a championship team and nobody wants to practice.
                                                                   --Bobby Knight

"Nobody can make you feel inadequate without your permission."
                                                                    --Eleanor Roosevelt

"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."
                                                                   --Mark Twain

"Not everything that can be counted counts--and not everything that counts can be counted."
                                                                     --William Bruce Cameron

"When you make the finding yourself--even if you are the last person on earth to see the light--you'll never forget it."
                                                                    --Carl Sagon

"No one has a finer command of language than the person who keeps his mouth shut."
                                                                   --Sam Rayburn

"We can do no great things--only small things with great love."
                                                                    --Mother Teresa

"I'm sure my memory only works one way," Alice remarked. "I can't remember things before they happen." "It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards," the Queen remarked.
                                                                    --Lewis Carroll

"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eye off the goal."
                                                                    --Hannah Moore

"Not a shread of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious."
                                                                    --Brandon Gill

"Where there is great love there are always miracles."
                                                                    --Willa Cather

"Enjoy pondering these thoughts."
                                                                    --Jim Bradley
