Favorite Quote:

"The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present; the occasion is piled high with difficulty, and so we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew; we must disenthrall ourselves--and then we shall save our country."
-Abraham Lincoln

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiasm."
-Winston Churchill
