the tough get going

"Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength."

"To the extent that you entertain lies and deceit, you are held
prisoner in a world cut off from reality. The truth you hide
from yourself, prevents you from growth and fulfillment.
The truth you hide from others, keeps you distantly apart. The
truth shines a bright light on life, so you can clearly see
the way to go. Success, achievement, happiness, joy, fellowship,
and fulfillment, thrive in the warm and nurturing light of
the truth. Honesty is the most direct path to wherever you want
to go. Truth and honesty are often difficult, yet never more
difficult, in the end, than deceit. To think otherwise,
is to deceive even yourself. Hiding in the shadows of falsehood,
makes it impossible to move forward.That the truth is moral and
ethical, is no secret. Yet truth is also practical, efficient,
and effective in every worthy pursuit, something well known by
those who enjoy lasting success. Live in the bright, empowering
light. Embrace the truth. It always serves you best."

- Ralph Marston
"Victory is won not in miles but in inches.
Win a little now, hold your ground,
and later, win a little more.”
