Typically, I reserve the yearly homage to my father for his birthday on October 20th. But as I reflect on my own birthday today, lessons learned and life experiences over the last year, I cannot help but remember the invaluable maxims my father repeated over and over. They have been my compass across uncharted territory, my guiding light when left to navigate alone in the dark.
“Never quit…Be relentless!”
“Nothing worth having, is ever easy to get.”
“Anger is a virus that can infect you and destroy you if you let it.”
“Dreams are a wonderful thing, but without courageous action they will not take you very far.”
