They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel. A man is too apt to forget that in this world he cannot have everything. A choice is all that is left to him. Better bend than break. Never swap horses while crossing a stream.Why not upset the apple cart? If you don't, the apples will rot anyway. There is never time to do it right, but there is always time to do it over. Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. Fail to plan, plan to fail. -Carl W. Buechner.
