Action is the real measure of intelligence.

Napoleon Hill
Live a life you’re proud of, and if you need to, have the strength to start all over again.
Most things in life require effort even if, years later, they seem easy.

The most painful thing to do is to love someone and never find the courage to let the person know how you feel.
Most things in life require effort even if, years later, they seem easy.


When people walk away from you, let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you, and it doesn't mean they are bad people. It just means that their part in your story is over.
Thank God It's Friday! Smile!

Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly
be possessed of -- for credit is like fire; when once you have
kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once
extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it
again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be
what you desire to appear.

fall together!
