There is nothing so strong or safe in an emergency of life as the simple truth.

Progress is progress

Even when you’re unable to do a lot, you still can do a little. A small effort advances life much more than no effort at all, and those small efforts add up.

When you’re not able to get all the work done, don’t waste your time pouting about it. Utilize your time to get some of the work done.

Progress is progress, whether it’s small, large, fast or slow. Instead of making excuses or regrets, make progress.

This day affords you opportunity, so use it while you have it. When you’re prevented from doing one thing, move on to something else.

Stride confidently, step by step, in the direction you’ve chosen, doing what you can with what you have. Interruptions, disappointments, distractions and delays will come, and through them all you can keep going.

With your effort and commitment, trade each small moment for a small victory. Moment by moment, day by day, allow achievement to steadily unfold through your actions.

— Ralph Marston
