True silence is the rest of the mind. It is to the spirit what sleep is to the body - nourishment and refreshment.

Never quit

The only way to lose is to quit. As long as you continue to make the effort, you have not lost. Everyone experiences setbacks. However, winners experience the most setbacks because winners persist as long as it takes to win.

Does it ever seem that you are blocked in every direction? That’s the time to get creative, become more flexible, and open yourself to the possibilities that are most certainly there.

Sometimes when you get stuck in a rut, the rut can suddenly and unexpectedly run out. And what a great opportunity that can be for you to climb out of that rut, look around, and see all the valuable things you’ve been missing.

Never quit. Use each setback, each disappointment as a cue to push on ahead with more determination than ever before. Never quit, and you will always be a winner.

— Ralph Marston
