It is by what we ourselves have done, and not by what others have done for us, that we shall be remembered in after ages. Learning is finding out what you already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, teachers. Do not play for safety; it is the most dangerous thing in the world. The way to be safe is never to be secure. People are not remembered by how few times they fail but by how often they succeed. Every wrong step is another step forward. Make the most of today. Translate your good intentions into actual deeds.

I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do. To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing. Remember, a dead fish can float downstream, but it takes a live one to swim upstream. The wisest men follow their own direction. First we form habits, then they form us. Conquer your bad habits, or they will eventually conquer you. The winds and waves are always on the side of the ablest navigators.
