Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.

Rise to the challenge

The more burdensome the challenge, the more valuable the response. Out of extreme difficulty, greatness is born.

When things seem to be at their worst, they are likely to soon get much better. The more intensely the problems are illuminated, the more effectively they can be addressed.

Always remember that life is incessantly dynamic. Life is able to respond with innovation, determination and an underlying goodness that cannot be denied.

The best cure for a problem is the problem itself. Because each problem is a well-defined opportunity for improvement.

Whether you judge something to be a problem or opportunity says more about you than about the situation. The way you choose to see the world is the way the world will be for you.

In life there is challenge and in challenge there is life. Rise to each challenge, and continue adding value to the ever-growing richness of life.

— Ralph Marston
