If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you.  What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.

Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared to believe that something inside of them was superior to circumstance.

We will remember them.

In an effort to get to the bottom of this mystery, officers from the Fortitude Valley Police Station will be in attendance at each of our CrossFit group sessions tomorrow to take finger prints and DNA swabs from everyone in attendance . . . Please extend every courtesy and assistance to the investigating officers . . .

 

In the arena of human life the honour and rewards fall to those who show their good qualities in action.

You will never stub your toe standing still. The faster you go, the more chance there is of stubbing your toe, but the more chance you have of getting somewhere.
