Excellence

Quote

Excellence is not a gift, but a skill that takes practice. We do not act ‘rightly’ because we are ‘excellent’, in fact we achieve ‘excellence’ by acting ‘rightly.’

Plato

Mind your own business

Never discourage anyone…..who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.

Plato

Don’t discourage people that are working on themselves! Motivate them or leave them alone but don’t you dare to speak low of someone who actually tries and makes a difference, no matter how small.

A bit of Sunday Courage

Courage is knowing what not to fear.

Plato

Courage is not absence of fear nor is it liking fear. It is to know your fears and to be able to live with them.

Know what you fear and know what certain things you just should not fear, no matter how you feel. You can do that, I’m sure!
