" Unsuccessful people are the ones who wonder why they failed. Successful people are the ones who learn from their failure and turn it into success. For it's not why you fail, it's what you can learn from failing."

" Never give up!"
Author Unknown --- Submitted by C.R., Age 16 --- New Zealand
This has helped me huge amounts over the past few years. I heard it when a teacher said it to me after I gave up during a game. It is now something that is always in my mind, even when the going gets tough, it keeps me going strong. I can only advise everyone else to do the same and keep on keeping on because things will always get better. Pain is only temporary memories last forever.

Children of today
A waste mind
Is a terrible kind
Wasting your mind
Equals a lifetime bind!
So-children of today
Don't waste your mind
Get your education
And let your mind shine!

" I once had a seminary teacher who asked us, "Whoever said life was fair?" Nobody answered because we knew that it isn't. The teacher replied to us after a couple seconds of silence, "I did." He was right in a way. Life will be fairer and a bit more rewarding if you put in the effort to make your life and the lives around you a more enjoyable experience."
