-George S. Patton

A man may fall many times, but he won't be a failure until he says that someone pushed him.
-Elmer G. Letterman.

There are no great people in this world, only great challenges which ordinary people rise to meet.
-William Frederick Halsy, Jr.
Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
