We grow a little every time we do not take advantage of somebody's weakness.

Planting seeds

When you plant a seed in fertile ground, and water it, and make sure it gets enough warmth and sunshine, it will grow and bear fruit.

It doesn’t matter how old you are. It doesn’t matter what color your skin is, or how much education you have had. It doesn’t matter how many seeds you have planted in the past. It doesn’t matter how many books you’ve read about planting seeds.

What matters is that you plant the seed, and you do what is necessary to make it grow.

Likewise, when you take the actions necessary for success, in whatever endeavor you choose, you will succeed. There is no substitute for action, and there is no stopping the result when you take the necessary action.

What are you waiting for?

— Ralph Marston
