“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”
~Aristotle

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
~Steve Jobs, CEO Of Apple, American business magnate and inventor.

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want,and, if they can’t find them, make them.”

~George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish Playwright

He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.
~Lao Tzu

When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we took so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened up for us.
~Helen Keller

Tomorrow will remain a mystery until it becomes my now.....NEVER let a future unknown distort or ruin a minute of time you could be enjoying right now. Because right now is all we're guaranteed. ~Sierra33

Thanks for this comment. When sharing something on EP makes a difference for someone I am elated. Some, like Lao Tzu just know their stuff and Helen Keller was just an awesome and determined woman!!
