In Our 2020 World

“In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope. In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort. In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream. And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.”
~ Michael Jackson,
Singer, Songwriter, Record Producer, Dancer & Actor.

Dare to Achieve Something Worth Doing

“Now is the time to be bolder, to dare to achieve, to begin something worth doing. Begin now to do something that has long been a dream, something that makes you approach each new day as a journey to accomplish what you want and desire.Your days are numbered, you won’t live forever so now is the time to grab hold of that dream and shake it for all it’s worth. Time is a fleeting commodity that can never be retrieved again so do it now, not tomorrow or the next day – now.”

~ Byron Pulsifer
