Use what talents you possess: The woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.

Be special

Look beyond the noisy crowd. Look past the petty complaints, the worthless squabbles, the useless distractions. Aim high. Expect the best of yourself, and never be satisfied with less.

Focus not on the problems, look at the possibilities. See your dreams clearly, follow them with persistence, and they will soon be real. Put your energy into making a difference, and you’ll rise above the crowd. Give the best that you have, and your rewards will be abundant.

Remember every day, that your life is special. In every circumstance is the opportunity to live life to the fullest. There’s no excuse not to. In you is the seed of greatness. Let it grow and flourish. Be the special person that you were meant to be.

— Ralph Marston
