A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent in doing nothing.

Just a minute

A minute is not a very long time. Yet everything that has ever been accomplished by anyone, has been done in a string of minutes, one after the other.

"Someday” is a nice, long comfortable time -- a time in which we can do anything. Yet there is no someday. We have only the minutes -- this one now, and the next one and the next.

And that’s great! Because anyone can do anything for just a minute. Whatever your dream, you can focus on it for a minute, can’t you? You can keep working for a minute. You can endure for a minute. String those minutes together and, used wisely, they bring you a life that’s full.

— Ralph Marston
