    "Religion is the impotence of the human mind to deal with occurrences it cannot understand. "

    It is high time that the ideal of success should be replaced by the ideal of service.
    --Albert Einstein

    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
    --Margaret Mead

    Mark Twain:

    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

    Woody Allen:

    "Eighty percent of success is showing up."

    And my all time personal favorite by Oliver Wendell Holmes:

    "I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving. "
