“Anybody who has ever observed a lotus flower emerging from a murky pond cannot fail to see the beauty of this exquisite plant.”

"Success is making your dreams a reality. True success is not having something worthwhile simply handed to you, but in working diligently at attaining a goal in spite of the many obstacles that may come in your way.  Success is overcoming the many failures you may experience in your journey toward accomplishing your goal.  Life lessons are learned along the journey not at the destination.  If you believe in yourself and have faith in God, He will make your plans succeed.  The ability to persevere through all circumstances, the zeal and determination to pursue your goal, and the faith in God’s power and ability over your plans are the ingredients in the recipe for success."
