"God grant me the serenity to accept the things
I can't change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
"Nothing is more desirable than to be released from an affliction, but nothing is more frightening than to be divested
of a crutch."
"Every person has three characters - that which he exhibits, that which he has, and that which he thinks he has."
"When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one
which has been opened for us."
"For each ecstatic instant
We must an anguish pay
In keen and quivering ratio
To the ecstacy.
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than
unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is
full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always
will solve the problems of the human race."
-John Calvin Coolidge
