My First Morning Thought

Grant me the courage not to give up even thought I think it is hopeless.
Chester W Nimitz

*I think that this should be all of our thoughts the minute we crawl out of bed!

When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
