A winner is not one who never fails, but one who NEVER
QUITS!  Success comes out of thousands of failure.

broadcaster. He was

would never be famous.

A small boy - the fifth amongst seven siblings of a
poor father, was
selling newspapers in a small village to earn his

exceptionally smart at school but was fascinated by
religion and rockets.
The first rocket he built crashed. A missile that he
built crashed
multiple times and he was made a butt of ridicule.He

are on the way out."
The group was called The Beatles.

over 2000

metal leg brace she had been dependent on and began to
walk without it.By 13 she had developed a rhythmic
walk, which doctors said was a
miracle. That same year she decided to become a
runner. She entered a race and came in last.
For the next few years every race she entered, she
came in last.Everyone told her to quit, but she kept
on running.
One day she actually won a race. And then another.From
then on she won every race she entered. Eventually
this little girl -
Wilma Rudolph, went on to win three Olympic gold
A school teacher scolded a boy for not paying
attention to his mathematics and for not being able to
solve simple
problems. She told him that you would not become
anybody in life. The boy went on to become Albert
The Moral of the above Stories:
Ch! aracter cannot be developed in ease and quiet -
Only through experiences of trial and suffering can
the soul be
strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and
success achieved.You gain strength, experience and
confidence by every
experience where you really stop to look fear in the
face.You must do the thing you cannot do. And
remember, the finest steel gets sent through the
hottest furnace.In LIFE, remember that you pass this
way only once!
let's live life to the fullest and give it our extreme

There are moments in life when you miss someone
so much that you just want to pick them from
your dreams and hug them for real!

When the door of happiness closes, another opens;
but often times we look so long at the
closed door that we don't see the one
which has been opened for us.

Don't go for looks; they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile,
because it takes only a smile to
make a dark day seem bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile.

Dream what you want to dream;
go where you want to go;
be what you want to be,
because you have only one life
and one chance to do all the things
you want to do.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
enough trials to make you strong,
enough sorrow to keep you human, and
enough hope to make you happy.

The happiest of people don't necessarily
have the best of everything;
they just make the most of
everything that comes along their way.

The brightest future will always
be based on a forgotten past;
you can't go forward in life until
you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying
and everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so at the end,
you're the one who is smiling and everyone
around you is crying.

Please send this message to those people
who mean something to you (I JUST DID);
to those who have touched your life in one way or another;
to those who make you smile when you really need it;
to those who make you see the
brighter side of things when you are really down;
to those whose friendship you appreciate;
to those who are so meaningful in your life.

If you don't send it, don't worry,
nothing bad will happen to you;
you will just miss out on the opportunity
to brighten someone's day with this message!!!

Don't count the years--count the memories...........

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away !
