"Don't Quit 5 minutes before the miracle." I am not sure who said it, but it has motivated me for, what seems like, ages. Determination has FINALLY paid off.

"Every man needs a woman when his life is a mess, because just like the game of chess, the queen protects the king." - Ritu Ghatourey



This is another quote that speaks to me on a regular basis. I am finally in a healthy, adult relationship. Casey protects me, and motivates me. She not only stands behind me, she always stands beside me, and even stands in front of me. She has changed my life.

Having a 'Can Do' attitude is no substitution for knowing what you can do.....

Don't confuse the two!

You thought Atlas Shrugged was fiction?

Look at this description of Detroit from [ The] Observer:


"What isn’t dumped is stolen. Factories and homes have largely been stripped of anything of value, so thieves now target cars’ catalytic converters. Illiteracy runs at around 47%; half the adults in some areas are unemployed. In many neighbourhoods, the only sign of activity is a slow trudge to the liquor store. "

Now have a look at the uncannily prophetic description of Starnesville, a Mid-Western town in Ayn Rand’s dystopian novel, Atlas Shrugged. Starnesville had been home to the great Twentieth Century Motor Company, but declined as a result of socialism:


A few houses still stood within the skeleton of what had once been an industrial town. Everything that could move, had moved away; but some human beings had remained. The empty structures were vertical rubble; they had been eaten, not by time, but by men: boards torn out at random, missing patches of roofs, holes left in gutted cellars. It looked as if blind hands had seized whatever fitted the need of the moment, with no concept of remaining in existence the next morning. The inhabited houses were scattered at random among the ruins; the smoke of their chimneys was the only movement visible in town. A shell of concrete, which had been a schoolhouse, stood on the outskirts; it looked like a skull, with the empty sockets of glassless windows, with a few strands of hair still clinging to it, in the shape of broken wires.

Beyond the town, on a distant hill, stood the factory of the Twentieth Century Motor Company. Its walls, roof lines and smokestacks looked trim, impregnable like a fortress. It would have seemed intact but for a silver water tank: the water tank was tipped sidewise.

They saw no trace of a road to the factory in the tangled miles of trees and hillsides. They drove to the door of the first house in sight that showed a feeble signal of rising smoke. The door was open. An old woman came shuffling out at the sound of the motor. She was bent and swollen, barefooted, dressed in a garment of flour sacking. She looked at the car without astonishment, without curiosity; it was the blank stare of a being who had lost the capacity to feel anything but exhaustion.

“Can you tell me the way to the factory?” asked Rearden.

The woman did not answer at once; she looked as if she would be unable to speak English. “What factory?” she asked.

Rearden pointed. “That one.”

“It’s closed.”

I tell my kids all the time: "you be you, they'll take care of the rest".

Don't be in such a rush to conform to what the other kids are thinking or saying or doing. You stick to what you know is right, everyone else will come around in the end. And if not, be yourself, after all you are ultimately responsible for yourself and your actions and no one else's.
