Robert H. Schuller
For every mountain there is a miracle.
Great things are done when men and mountains meet.
Henry B. Wilson
He who finds diamonds must grapple in mud and mire because diamonds are not found in polished stones. They are made.

I'd rather be a "could-be', if I cannot be an "are'; because a "could-be" is a "maybe" who is reaching for a star. I'd rather be a "has-been" than a "might-have-been', by far; for a "might-have-been" has never "been", but a "has" was once an "are'.
