I am on a break so I picked up the book on my desk

"Deny not the spirit of revelaton, nor the spirit of prophecy, for wo unto him who denieth these things;"

(Doctrine and Covenants 11:25)

(I am preparing to teach a lesson at Church...)

It was either this or a dictionary.
Where are we going, and why am I in this handbasket?

"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen." Conan O'Brien

--Osho, Courage
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” ~ Muhammad Ali
