Consider How You Want Your World to Be

“The more closely you get in touch with your dreams, the more able you are to make them real. The more vividly you consider how you want your world to be, the more real and effective tools you will have for making it so.
Dare to visualize a world in which your most treasured dreams have become true.”
~ Ralph Marston,
Author

No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams.
You should never agree to surrender your dreams.”

& Shadow U.S. Senator (District of Columbia, 1991-1997)

I Went Merrily to the Bank

“If you can’t ‘Bank’, there’s no need to work.  If I want to do a charity or freebie, I will choose that on my own.
But, basically, I work to see “Okay, the nut is cracked what do I have left to put into the bank?”
Because the bottom line is to capitalize on my health and success, or popularity, at this moment;
because it’s not promised to me in the future (and to prepare for that future).
Even if I become more so, there’s no one to promise that to me.  I’d be a fool to cry later and say,
“I can’t pay my bills; I don’t have anything.”, and whatever.  I don’t want to be one of those people.
I want to say, “Look, when it was time to make hay, I made it.  I’m like a little ant, I went merrily to the bank and put it away.””
~ Lola Falana
Singer, Dancer, Actress, Model, Golden Globe Award Nom. (1970),
Tony Award Nom. (1975), Theater World Award (1975), Founder – Lambs of God.
