''The fast eat the slow.''It means to act quickly rather than procrastinate or someone will beat you to an opportunity.
''The idea is to build mountains, not excavate dirt.''Get things moving positively whatever the condition.
''Often there is astonishment to non-surrender.''When we refuse to give up, sometimes things we thought impossible happen.
''You may defeat me, but you will remember that you fought me.''Even in defeat, if you give your best, your opponent will remember how difficult you were to overcome.
''Don't dream as a hero and awaken as a coward.''Hold yourself accountable. Don't compromise your strength.
Station to station the news is the same,
Stronger today than yesterday.
Heinous crimes, intense, evil passion.
Suicide bombers killing children, shattering parental dreams-
All in the name of Allah.
Kidnappings, random unchecked lunacy in the marketplace,
Blatant disregard for human life.
Mankind turning from itself.
Unblinking consciences squeezing triggers on defiant weapons.
Lies and denials have become universal currency.
Immoral short cuts have become off ramps for the autobahn misdirects.
We can't crop dust the evil from our jaded souls.
