"Because all people are very important people"
Hope is the thing with feathers

Autobiography in 5 Short Chapters
by Portia Nelson
Chapter 1: I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk and I fall in. I am lost; I am helpless; it is not my fault. It takes me forever to find the way out.
Chapter 2: I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don't see it. I fall in again. I can't believe I'm in the same place, but it's not my fault. It still takes me a long time to get out.
Chapter 3: I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it is there. I still fall in. It is a habit. But my eyes are open and I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.
Chapter 4: I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.
Chapter 5: I walk down a different street.
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you like to win, but you think you can't

Success begins with the thoughts in your head...
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are.
You've got to think high to rise...
You've got to be sure of the thoughts in your head
Before you can win any prize.
Life's battles don't always go
to the strongest or fastest man...
But sooner or later the one who will win
Is the one who believes that he can
