    I have always felt that although someone may defeat me, and I strike out in
    a ball game, the pitcher on the particular day was the best player. But I
    know when I see him again, I'm going to be ready for his curve ball. Failure
    is a part of success. There is no such thing as a bed of roses all your
    life. But failure will never stand in the way of success if you learn from

    Sorry, Livesteam, but the only way you get sympathy here is
    to have a heart attack or a close relation in the hospital ... :D :D

    but doesn't just being on The Gauge make you feel better??
    I know it does me when I'm feelin' partickly grumpy. :) :)

    At least it's Friday :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    There is an art to flying or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

    Ever wonder why you have to present your Costco card to get in the door, then you have to present it again when you check out at the resgister??? Isn't that redundent?

    It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of great achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat."
    - T. Roosevelt (Panama, 1906)

    The art of war teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy's not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him; not on the chance of his not attacking, but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable.
