DATE THOUGHT OF THE DAY
3/1/18      "Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."-Theodore Roosevelt
3/2/18      "When you have a number of disagreeable duties to perform, always do the most disagreeable first." - Josiah Quincy

3/15/18      "Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday." - John Wayne
