“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life – one that ANYONE can run and win.”

The Greatest Race: The Race of Life… “The best way to predict your future is to create it. So believe in your dream. Never throw it away. “

“The best way to predict your future is to create it. So believe in your dream. Never throw it away. Believe in the dream even when it is impossible. Believe in the stars, even when they’re hidden in the storm. Believe in love, even when you can’t find it or feel it. Believe in faith, even when God is silent. So turn your hurts into halos and your deepest scars into the brightest stars. And when it’s time eventually to take your last breath… you will come to the end of your journey with pride behind you, love around you and hope ahead of you.”

– Benediction from Coretta Scott King’s funeral by Robert H. Schuller, founding Pastor, Chrystal Cathedral, Garden Grove, California (and slightly adapted by craig)

and you may even hit the stars.”

 “Hold fast to your dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.”

-American poet, Langston Hughes

“I wish you well on a rainy day
I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
to remind you that happiness can happen
when you least expect it.

I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
to show you the simple beauty of life
and to give you the magic of dreams come true.

I wish you rainbows
I wish you well.”

For if dreams die

Life is a broken-winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

Frozen with snow.”

” 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. There is a rich tapestry of talent in every human soul, that flows through the spirit of God. So don’t spend your days stringing and tuning your instrument; start making and playing your unique tunes of music right now.”
