The battles that count aren't the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself—the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us—that's where it's at.
-- Jesse Owens, Blackthink (1970)
I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminshes fear.
-- Rosa Parks
Yes we can.
-- Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to flee and fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams.
Our dreams must be stronger than our memories. We must be pulled by our dreams, rather than pushed by our memories.
We've removed the ceiling above our dreams. There are no more impossible dreams.
Leadership has a harder job to do than just choose sides. It must bring sides together.

There are plenty of teams in every sport that have great players and never win titles. Most of the time, those players aren't willing to sacrifice for the greater good of the team. The funny thing is, in the end, their unwillingness to sacrifice only makes individual goals more difficult to achieve. One thing I believe to the fullest is that if you think and achieve as a team, the individual accolades will take care of themselves.
We can't become what we need to be by remaining what we are.
You must change in order to survive.
If you want to get an idea across, wrap it up in a person.
Never, never rest contented with any circle of ideas, but always be certain that a wider one is still possible.
