Climbing Mountains, Chasing Dreams

Climbing Mountains, Chasing Dreams

Just testing, as this “non-techno” practices and learns a bit more each day

“You think you have a limit. And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.”

“Everyone has their own mountain to climb, some very high,  along life’s amazing journey”
” I truly believe we can ALL create and enthuse magic into ‘so-called humdrum little lives’. You don’t just have to be the choreographer, or the conductor of your life script – rather paint your life as the masterpiece it could (one day) be.”
You are the artist painting the masterpiece that is your life.”

Before James Patterson became the Guinness World Record-holder as the author with the most No. 1 New York Times best-sellers (67), he was a struggling writer with a thick folder of rejection letters. Thirty-one publishers passed on his first novel, The Thomas Berryman Number, before Little, Brown and Company published it in 1976. The thriller, about a Nashville journalist tracking down an assassin, won the prestigious Edgar Award for best first novel from the Mystery Writers of America. Still, it sold only about 10,000 copies.

But his latest endeavour is particularly broad: teaching fiction to the masses.

Patterson, along with two-time Academy Award winner Dustin Hoffman and tennis phenomenon Serena Williams, is kicking off the highly produced online video service MasterClass, where you can learn from the world’s best. Acting tips from Rain Man? Tennis secrets from the winner of 20 Grand Slam singles titles? The secret…

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion…”

I (We) Must Not Hate!

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
