  1. The person who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.  Chinese Proverb
  2. “Circumstances may cause interruptions and delays, but never lose sight of your goal. Prepare yourself in every way you can by increasing your knowledge and adding to your experience, so that you can make the most of opportunity when it occurs.”  Mario Andretti, Auto Racer
  3. It’s too big a world to be in competition with everybody else, the only person I have to get better than is who I am right now…Sherman Potter, Colonel, U.S. Army, Mash 4077
  4. You accomplish victory step by step, not by leaps and bounds.  Lyn St. James, race car driver
  5. A man/woman should never be ashamed to own that he has been in the wrong, which is but saying that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.  Alexander Pope (1688-1744) English Poet
