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)

“As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”
– craig (as inspired by Acts 17:28 and the words of Felicia Searcy)
“Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.a
“Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”
“Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…
and you may even hit the stars.”
– craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)
When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
– Leonardo da Vinci

“When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the wings that carried you there.”
– as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former minister in New England, Massachusetts
“The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”
– c
“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.”
“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”

 “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.”

making the commitment and then creating it.”

A WRITER’S DREAM(S)

“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.
