People forget how fast you did a job -- but they remember how well you did it.

One or the other

Think for yourself, or someone else will think for you. Follow your dreams, or you’ll spend your time and effort in the service of someone else’s dream. Discipline yourself, or you’ll eventually need to be disciplined by others.

Make the most of what you have, or it will slip through your hands. Be the best you can be, or you’ll regret the opportunities you missed. Learn all you can, or you’ll be left behind. Live with purpose and passion, or your days will be empty.

Make the most of right now, or you’ll later wish you had. Value and appreciate your the good things you have, or they’ll be of no use to you. Act with courage, or you’ll live in fear. Give of yourself, or you’ll never make a difference.

— Ralph Marston
