|Set Your Course
|I heard an Olympic athlete say that there was a big difference
between "easy" and "simple." "Getting to the Olympics wasn't
easy," she said, "but it was simple - I just had to set my course
and, no matter what happened, try to never waver."

home of the 2016 Summer Olympics.
|Set your course by the stars, not by the light of every passing ship.
-- Gen. Omar Bradley
|A lot of people quit on the one yard line; they give up at the
last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touchdown.
-- Paul "Bear" Bryant
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and debts are high,
When every smile turns into a sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup.
He learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown,
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.
-- Edgar A. Guest
|Within each of us is a hidden store of determination -
to keep us in the race when all seems lost.
