Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
– Julius Henry “Groucho” Marx, 1890-1977, Comedian and Film Star
The moment you commit and quit holding back, all sorts of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, will rise up to help you. The simple act of commitment is a powerful magnet for help.
– Napoleon Hill, 1883-1970, Author of Think and Grow Rich

– Karl Menninger
